Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of third part of the book The Lure of Anti-Semitism: Hatred of Jews in Present-Day France provides an overview of anti-Semitism and communities. This part explains why the analysis of anti-Semitism in the light of a living Jewish community gains in strength of conviction when it is carried out not only at national level but also, and above all, locally, in situations where the reality of the existence of a Jewish community acting as a collective entity is overwhelming. Although situations of this sort are not exceptional there are not many examples. In the Parisian region, Sarcelles is undoubtedly the best known case: it is in this town, where the Jews constitute a powerful community. Sarcelles today is generally looked on as a relatively peaceful town.

Keywords: Anti-Semitism; France; Jews community; Parsian region; Sarcelles
