Primary Source: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

The Dybbukast, Season 4, Guest Episode: Primary Source: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion

Season 4, Guest Episode

This guest episode from Primary Source, a limited series podcast from the Taube Center for Jewish Studies at Stanford University, explores the notorious and fraudulent antisemitic text most commonly known as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, taking a look at its history and its impact on world politics. This episode from our colleagues is a meaningful companion to our popular Season 1 episode, "The Protocols, Henry Ford, and The International Jew," co-produced with the Association for Jewish Studies, which investigated, in part, the ways in which The Protocols were distributed in the United States and beyond.
