Indeed, some historians have argued that Nazi Germany's affection for Shakespeare as a purveyor of Aryan values was bolstered by the many performances of 'The Merchant of Venice' that remove out-of-context refer- ] encestoShylockfromFlorida's | usur lawwhich have the effect i of fostering anti-Jewish ste- reotypes and anti-Semitism," I saidAndrewRosenkranz, ADL I Florida regional director. I Due to the age-old canard depicting Jews as greedy Crist were launched during that time period. As a result, the use of these terms in the con- text ofausury statute plays on the worst stereotypes of Jews and can only serve to foster anti-Semitism. ADL applauds the long overdue removal of these words from Florida's criminal usury statute." In 2006, the ADL produced a discussion guide for educa- tors entitled "Anti-Semitism and The Merchant of Venice" to help navigate through the play.
