Antisemitismus auch im Schulbuch? Zum historischen und pädagogischen Kontext eines gravierenden Vorwurfs

This article takes up Josef Schuster’s critique from 2018, which was too quickly rejected in the public debate, concerning anti-Semitism in textbooks. It outlines the problems of topicalizing Jewish history and anti-Semitism in textbooks in the historical and memorial context and discusses some pedagogical challenges related to this issue. The article uses examples to demonstrate how stereotypes, prejudices and, therefore, anti-Semitism are still conveyed, even unconsciously and unwillingly, because of insufficient knowledge of history, false conclusions, and the fallacies of anti-anti-Semitism.
