It took the form of saturation Hate Propaganda. It went like snide remarks and outright hate propaganda. Jews were blamed for the Depression, Communist uprisings ( parlty true- a Jewish NKVD officer was the trigger-man at the Ekaterinaberg (basement of Blood). this has been documented- scandals such as the crooked businessman Stavisky ( French Russo-Jewish pawnbroker turned super Loan shark) also people the purple pages of Hate propaganda. there were sordid cartoons, Jewish doctors as sex deviates. Jewish comercfial types as Vampire bats, and so on. it was an ugly mixture that went up in the world-shaking Holocaust. the public was being brain-washed- with a cyclonic force- to hate Jewish people- sometimes humor was involved the Iron or Maltese Cross- 8 points and ( Pour le Merite) for the merit- (Good!) contrasted with the six-pointed Jewish star given the derisive title- Pour le Semite- For the Semite! this was ready made for Vichy France as the language pun works in French. so they even worked a good deal of dark, gallows humor into the mix to make it palatable laugh at the Jewish problem.

Antisemitism was one factor in the Holocaust, but not the basis of it. Antisemitism is a term used to denote a prejudice against Jews, much like sexism denotes a prejudice against a sex, or racism a prejudice against a race.

Anti-semitism is unfortunatley a form of dsiscrimmination in people's minds. It can't be stopped, only dampened down to say the least. It is like a belief, which can't really be eradicated.

Anti-semitism can be found around the world. Most of the time, gangs of neo-nazis (or skinheads) can be the easiest place to find active anti-semitism. However, many "mainstream" places, like restaurants, tv sitcoms and the Southern United States, practice veiled and overt anti-Semitism as a way of life.

Like all forms of racism, religism, and discrimination in general, Anti-Semitism is indefensible behavior and is based on fallacious reasons. It is due to this similarity, i.e. both being discriminatory practices, that racism has been strongly correlated with Anti-Semitism in practice and action.

There is no "central" organization for Anti-Semitism, but there are numerous organizations that are explicitly Anti-Semitic. These range from White Supremacist Groups like the Ku Klux Klan and Stormfront to Islamist Groups like Hamas and Hezbollah to Neo Nazi Groups.
