In the middle-ages, Jews were expelled from Western Europe. 80 years ago, we thought that the worst had happened and we are still trying to fix it today. And yet, anti-Semitism is still here showing its ugly face. What is anti-Semitism? When and where did it come from? Why is it persistently coming back? Why the Jews?
This investigation retraces the genealogy of antisemitism, from its origins to the present day – and for the first time with images. Some thirty leading international experts have created a fresco that will explore the multiple facets of the phenomenon and its evolution through the ages. To do so, they have been drawing on the traces left throughout the world and the 3D historical reconstructions developed by Ubisoft for its Assassin's Creed series. This landmark series is retracing 2000 years of History and aim to be a reference for future generations.
