Antisemitism and xenophobia (anti-Polish sentiment)[edit]

It would be interesting to see the article explore the aspect where people, due to general xenophobic attitude are also classed as Jews and subjected to antisemitic abuse. For example, in the case of anti-Polonism (since Poland is a successor state to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in which most Jews lived in early modern era). This happened to Marie Curie who came from Warsaw (at the time a city with a very large Jewish population), and was subjected to antisemitic abuse. Is it possible that there is a link between Antisemitism and antipolonism? (talk) 16:00, 19 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'd say that -- at least at one period of time -- a large number of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe might have provoked a generalized xenophobia aimed at Eastern Europeans -- not exclusively Poles -- because they were assumed to be Jewish, especially if they were from the "lower classes".

Dreyfus Affair[edit]

Shouldn't the Dreyfus affair be under the Persecution header as well as the tropes header? ModernMephisto (talk) 10:00, 24 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

On the click box that links you to the new articles within the "Antisemitism Series". Dreyfus should be under Persecution/Persecuted. ModernMephisto (talk) 04:40, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]


I edited the wikilink "came to power" in the Section 3.11 20th century sentence starting "In Germany, shortly after Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power" so that the link led directly to instead of via the Redirect from Machtergreifung (indicated by "Adolf Hitler's rise to power (Redirected from Machtergreifung)" at the top of the page. I'd be grateful if Rsk6400 or someone else could explain why he reverted my edit, why the indirect link is better than the direct link. Mcljlm (talk) 11:39, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mcljlm, according to my experience, links to sections are a bit problematic because section headings often change. After the section heading was changed, the link won't work any more. Also, since "Machtergreifung" is already a redirect, it might some day occur to somebody to make an article out of it. Also, I understood MOS:RDR and MOS:NOPIPE as supporting my edit.

It seems strange Rsk6400 to have a link to a non-English word which is unlikely to have its own article. Mcljlm (talk) 22:24, 25 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
