On 22 April, 2013 The Algemeiner newspaper released its "JEWISH 100" list of "the top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life".
Among the "Jewish 100" is SICSA director Prof. Robert Wistrich
Anti-Semitism Scholar "This academic is considered the leading scholar of the history of anti-Semitism and in 2012 published his 29th book titled From Ambivalence to Betrayal: The Left, the Jews and Israel. The impressive tome of over 600 pages offers an historic review and analysis of the abandonment of the Jewish people by the left from the early 19th century until the present. With anti-Semitism on the rise, it's worth understanding the centuries-old phenomenon, and there are few better than Wistrich to help us understand it." (The Algemeiner, April 24, 2013)
Prof. Wistrich thanks The Algemeiner for this recognition and observes that this honor also reflects on SICSA's positive influence internationally, and the work of its dedicated and professional staff.
