Why Do People Love Dead Jews?
In These Times with Rabbi Ammi Hirsch: Dara Horn
"People Love Dead Jews." That's the title of Dara Horn's latest critically acclaimed book.
These past weeks I've found myself wondering — as perhaps you have — why so many decent non-Jewish people have remained silent in the face of the largest mass killing of Jews since the Holocaust. Or worse: defended, excused, apologized for, or justified terrorism...
Dara says the point of her book is not to explore antisemitism, but rather to scrutinize the ways Jewish history is exploited to comfort the living and to distract from the main issue: the very real deaths of very real Jews.
