Historical Context

Antisemitism is often termed the 'Longest Hatred', because it can be traced back 2,000 years to anti-Jewish narratives that developed in the early years of Christianity, blaming Jews for the death of Jesus Christ. In this country, important developments in the history of antisemitism include the invention of the ‘blood libel’ allegation in Norwich in 1144; the massacre of Jews at Clifford’s Tower in York in 1190; and the expulsion of all Jews from England in 1290. These historical anti-Jewish events still influence antisemitic language that is used against Jews today.
