Why the Jews?: The Need to Scapegoat by Marek Halter
Translator: Grace McQuillan
Seventy-five years after the Holocaust, which decimated a people several thousand years old, after we swore in an almost unanimous voice, “Never again,” the scourge of anti-Jewish sentiment invades our sidewalks again, especially in Western Europe, including France, the homeland of human rights. Marek Halter, a Jew himself, asks, “Why always the Jews?” This hard-hitting essay examines all the false trials of Jews—religious or otherwise—during troubled periods throughout the world’s history.
