‘People Love Dead Jews,’ Dara Horn | Top Story, Ep. 21

Author Dara Horn joins JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan S. Tobin to talk about the way sympathy for dead Jews gives the world a permission slip for hating live ones.

The two discuss her new book, People Love Dead Jews: Report From a Haunted Present, and topics like the role that the memory of Anne Frank plays in granting the world absolution for the Holocaust, the dishonest effort to claim that The Merchant of Venice isn’t anti-Semitic, “Jewish heritage” tourism and myths about name changes at Ellis Island.

“Top Story” also airs on JBS-TV.
