This article discusses social work compliance with antisemitic policies under National Socialism and the strengths and limitations of addressing this record of compliance through ethical frameworks provided by professional bodies. It addresses factors that militate against learning from this history of compliance: textual silences about antisemitis, the radical separation of the present from the past, and the disconnection of antisemitism from other forms of racism. It confronts the difficult relation between antisemitism and the ‘Israel question’ and how professionals today might think about the challenges antisemitism continues to pose.
