Antisemitism isn't always easy to see, making it easier to spread. Holly Huffnagle, U.S. Director, Combating Antisemitism at American Jewish Committee, expertly explains when and why certain terms are antisemitic and why they should not be part of the public discussion about the war or in speaking about Jews. Holly educates viewers on how to recognize antisemitic words, phrases and ideas. She talks about American Jewish Committee's newly revised Translate Hate glossary, which seeks to expose the hate hiding between the lines and translate it into something positive, as the only way to stop antisemitism is to understand it.
