Antisemitism Graduates With America's Students

As someone who has been monitoring the alarming normalization of hatred towards Israel— and by extension, Jews—on the American college campus, I am distressed that the Jewish communal world has not noticed these sentiments have an afterlife.

A Return to Bergen-Belsen and the Future of Holocaust Remembrance

Menachem Rosensaft's connections with Bergen-Belsen lie far deeper than all that. His parents, Polish Jews who had survived Auschwitz-Birkenau, met there shortly after their liberation by British troops on April 15, 1945.
