The Tom Lantos Archives on Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Denial

In April 2009, MEMRI dedicated its Anti-Semitism Documentation Project to the late Congressman Tom Lantos, in an inauguration ceremony held at the U.S. Capitol. Anti-Semitism in the Arab world, South Asia, and Iran has evolved rapidly in recent years. The Tom Lantos Archives documents anti-Semitic themes in newspaper reports, editorials, and other media from the Middle East and South Asia. These themes include calls in mosque sermons and in the media for killing Jews, based on various Islamic origins; old European libels and stereotypes; and Nazi propaganda. This project, which includes thousands of pages of translations and hundreds of hours of footage from the MEMRI TV Project, maintains the largest archive in the world of translated material on anti-Semitism in this region from the past decade. This project has provided material in numerous court cases, resulting in many Arab and Iranian TV channels being taken off the air in the West.
