Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report shares a clip of Holocaust survivor Marian Turski speaking on Holocaust memorial day at Auschwitz. His message of how the Jews were slowly othered should be closely listened to as politicians push for more laws targeting specific groups of people.
What Is Othering?
Othering is a phenomenon in which some individuals or groups are defined and labeled as not fitting in within the norms of a social group. It is an effect that influences how people perceive and treat those who are viewed as being part of the in-group versus those who are seen as being part of the out-group.
Othering also involves attributing negative characteristics to people or groups that differentiate them from the perceived normative social group.
It is an “us vs. them” way of thinking about human connections and relationships. This process essentially involves looking at others and saying “they are not like me” or “they are not one of us.”
