In May 2014, ADL released the results of a research study about the attitudes and opinions toward Jewish people in over 100 countries around the world. The study was commissioned by First International Resources and all of the interviews were conducted between July 2013 and February 2014. The study, known as ADL GLOBAL 100™, consists of surveys of 53,100 adults in 102 countries and territories. The survey found that anti-Semitic attitudes are persistent and pervasive around the world. More than one in four adults, 26% of those surveyed, hold anti-Semitic attitudes. This figure represents an estimated 1.09 billion people around the world.
This lesson provides an opportunity for high school students to understand more about anti-Semitic attitudes and stereotypes by people around the world, explore the Global 100 website and consider what can be done about anti-Semitic attitudes.
