The Handbook of Antisemitism Online compiles the knowledge on the phenomenon of Judaeophobia without limits of time or space. The database contains all of the 2,200 entries of the print version of the Handbuch des Antisemitismus (8 volumes, 2008–2015).
Antisemitism is the oldest form of religious, cultural, social and political prejudice, and here it is presented and interpreted in all its manifestations: It contains 650 biographies from late antiquity up to the present day; entries on Judaeophobia in 85 countries and regions; terms, theories and ideologies of antisemitism; events, legislative and administrative actions of discrimination and controversies; organizations, publications as well as more than 700 entries that survey cultural antisemitism in film, theater, literature, and the visual arts.
While not neglecting medieval times and the early modern period, the focus is on the modern era. The manifold manifestations of antisemitism are taken into account: religiously motivated Christian anti-Judaism, racially based antisemitism, secondary antisemitism, and anti-Zionism,.
The aim of the Handbook is to provide theoretical and practical knowledge on all aspects of hostility towards Jews. It addresses all those who need information on prejudice and stereotypes against Jews – in academia and school, in media, politics and other contexts.
