Anti-semitism is the word used to designate the hatred of Jews because they are Jews. This form of bigotry has been present in Europe and elsewhere for centuries. It has led to riots against Jews, burning of Jewish buildings and districts, and other atrocities. The Nazi-directed Holocaust is the most extreme case of anti-semitism; during it, the Nazis killed at least six million European Jews.
