  1. It seems to me that the key to understanding Heidegger’s anti-Semitism is the same as the key to his deep-seated anti-Liberalism. The equating of Jews and Liberalism, their intertwining, was a common topos in Germany throughout (and before) the 19th century and into to 20th, up to and including the Nazi period (and beyond). Heidegger is a staunch bearer of this prejudice; cf. e.g. his denunciation of Jewish Liberal Neo-Kantian, Hönigswald, in1933. So philosophically, the task is to rethink Heidegger’s thinking in relation to his rejection of Liberalism and its conception of freedom, and so get over Heidegger’s being Back in Black.
