Verve Book Club: “People Love Dead Jews: Reports from a Haunted Present” by Dara Horn

August 23, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Reflecting on subjects including the international veneration of Anne Frank, the blockbuster traveling exhibition called ​“Auschwitz,” the Jewish history of the Chinese city of Harbin, and the ​“righteous Gentile” Varian Fry, Dara Horn’s collection of essays challenges us to confront the reasons why there might be so much fascination with Jewish deaths..

Horn draws on her own and her family’s life and experiences to assert the vitality, complexity, and depth of this life against an anti-Semitism that, far from being disarmed by the mantra of ​“Never forget,” is on the rise.

“Readers will be enthralled throughout by the fierce logic of Horn’s arguments, novelty of research, black humor, and sharp phrasing… A riveting, radical, essential revision of the stories we all know — and some we don’t.”
