This chapter, which discusses the connection between malaria control and Judaism in mandatory Palestine, mentions Hermann Zondek, who likened the symptoms of Judaism as a social disease to the physical symptoms of malaria. It argues that the problematic condition of Jews in Europe has its roots decades earlier in modern anti-Semitism, and explains that the anti-Semitic rhetoric of the late nineteenth century was informed and substantiated by eugenics and theories of degeneration and racial hygiene.

Keywords:   malaria control, mandatory Palestine, Hermann Zondek, Judaism, Jews, Europe, anti-Semitism, eugenics, racial hygiene
