    A superb course, as I would expect from Yad Vashem. I deepened my understanding of what drives contemporary anti-Semitism, especially in the UK.

    One of FutureLearn's great features is the interactive forums where learners can share comments, insights and links. In this instances I learnt a lot from my fellow learners, nearly as much as I did from the course material which was superb.
