Photography captured during the January Capitol Insurrection has yielded a virtual library of disturbing imagery. Many of the symbols visible in these photos, including insignia on participant clothing, signage, sculpture, and metaphorical paraphernalia harken to both overt and covert in-group antisemitic intent. Watch Brandeis University’s Professor of American Jewish History, Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, in conversation about the history, themes, and relevance of these symbols continuing to show up in contemporary American society.
