Antisemitism in Sport in the Shadow of the Munich Massacre

Sports mirror human society, and unfortunately, both are tainted by bigotry and prejudice. In the first episode of our podcast, we delve into the topic of hatred in sports with renowned sports journalist Jeremy Schaap and Daniel Lörcher, who serves as Dortmund's Special Envoy for Combating Discrimination. Our discussion ranges from instances of Jew-hatred exhibited by soccer fans with antisemitic beliefs to the tragic events of the Munich Olympics massacre, which inspired Jeremy Schaap's documentary on one of the survivors.
