Episode 69: Dara Horn: People Love Dead Jews

Dara Horn’s new book is a departure from her usual imaginative fiction. It’s a collection of essays provocatively titled People Love Dead Jews. She also has a companion podcast called Adventures with Dead Jews. In both, Dara explores the subtler side of antisemitism, in which the role Jews play in the non-Jewish imagination has little to do with real Jewish lives. In this episode of Can We Talk?, Dara Horn talks with Nahanni Rous about the way Anne Frank is remembered around the world, how antisemitic attacks are reported in the United States, and the 3000 years of experience Jews have surviving as a minority culture.
