The Holocaust- 9/2 Roots of Anti-Judaism o Term: anti-Semitism – what is the distinction? o How Christianity viewed Judaism as an inferior/dangerous religion There were geographic reasons even before the Christians came  along for disliking the Jews However, most people at this time managed to respect other faiths  and incorporated aspects from one faith into their own Pagan people observed elements of the Sabbath They didn’t make sacrifices to idols, which set them apart Also their views on sacrificing animals (keeping Kosher) There was also a lot of attraction to Judaism, people were  converting because they liked the monotheism o Matthew::70-80 His blood be on us and on our children.” The Jews asked for not only them to suffer for their  actions, but for many generations to come as well Most important passage in the text This text was read on Good Friday for a long time, until the  Vatican wanted to make peace with the Jews and remove  anti-Jewish sentiments from the liturgy o This meant for Jews that Good Friday was Bad  Friday Christians would come out of their churches  and attack Jews for crucifying Jesus, so  Jews would try to stay indoors on this day
