Israel Against All Odds: Anti-Semitism From Its Beginnings to The Holocaust Years by Christopher H. K. Persaud is a powerful expose and a reflection on the tribulations of Israel throughout history. The author reflects on anti-semitism around the world, tracing its origins in history and exploring its different forms, demonstrating with very concrete historical examples of how hatred against the Jews has evolved through time. In this book, readers will learn about the Jewish expulsions over the centuries, understand the global trend that fueled anti-semitism, the role of the American media and their distortion of the truth. The author explores the expulsions of Jews by Arab nations, apartheid and South African anti-semitism, Western anti-semitism and the painful experience of the Holocaust, and a lot more.

This is a book that brilliantly captures the persecution and suffering of a people, persecution that came from all parts of the world, including the Christian world. But why? The author explores the resilience of the Jews, demonstrating their strong sense of community and how they survived. The book proposes some solutions to the painful subject, solutions that are worth looking at. This book is packed with information and it shows how anti-semitism has permeated different areas of life, including the social, religious, economic, and cultural aspects of communal experience. Israel Against All Odds: Anti-Semitism From Its Beginnings to The Holocaust Years redefines anti-semitism and exalts the resilience of a people proud of their heritage. There is a lot to learn from this book. Deeply researched and beautifully written, Israel Against All Odds is a great tool for historians and anyone seeking to learn more about the Holocaust.
