Explore the recent rise in antisemitism, which is increasing in ways not seen since the 1930s, in the U.S. and Europe, and hear firsthand accounts from victims, witnesses and others who have experienced it. “Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations” airs on Arizona PBS Tuesday, May 26 at 8 p.m.

WATCH: “Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations”

Mass murders, vandalism, social media abuse, propaganda, assault – by virtually every yardstick, antisemitism in the U.S. and Europe is rising. Like a virus, it mutates and evolves across cultures, borders and ideologies, making it all but impossible to stop. The 90-minute documentary examines the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and the rise of antisemitism on the far right. In England, members of the traditionally anti-racist, far-left Labour party conflate Israel and Jews with antisemitic vitriol, causing tremendous pain for the Jewish community. And in France, the film illuminates the seemingly endless wave of violence against Jews by Islamists and radicals.
