Former Ambassador Danny Danon on His Time ”In the Lion’s Den”

Former Ambassador Danny Danon on His Time ”In the Lion’s Den”

May 10, 2022

What is it like to represent Israel on the world stage? Former Ambassador Danny Danon has insights few can rival. He spent five years (2015-2020) as Israel's permanent representative to the United Nations, a necessary but complex place for Jews and the State of Israel – and an institution known for its systemic bias against the Jewish state.

In his upcoming book, "In the Lion's Den: Israel and the World,” Ambassador Danon shares his experiences on the front lines of Israel’s global presence.

B'nai B'rith CEO Dan Mariaschin speaks with the Ambassador about “In the Lion’s Den,” his commitment to the Jewish state through public service, key moments from his time representing Israel at the world body, and why he views his country as an increasingly major player on the world stage.

Author Margot Webb on Surviving the Holocaust as a Child

Author Margot Webb on Surviving the Holocaust as a Child

February 24, 2022

Margot Webb hasn't forgotten what happened to her family more than 80 years ago in Nazi Germany. The sacrifices made to save her and her mother. The heartlessness of former friends. The brutality of SS officers.

Webb's book, "Tears in the Eyes of My Enemy," follows a slightly fictionalized version of herself – Meryam – as she returns to her childhood homes in Arnstadt and Halle, Germany, and the unlikely friendships she builds with descendants of her former tormentors.

In this episode, B'nai B'rith CEO Dan Mariaschin speaks with Webb about "Tears in the Eyes of My Enemy," her journey back to the places she once called home and her efforts making sure others don't forget the cruelty she witnessed – and experienced.

Award-Winning Author Dara Horn on Her New Book, ”People Love Dead Jews: Reports from a Haunted Present”

November 3, 2021

Author Dara Horn is tired of Jewish history being exploited to flatter the living. In her new book, "People Love Dead Jews: Reports from a Haunted Present," Horn challenges us to confront the public's fascination with Jewish deaths and why there is often little respect for Jewish lives.

A two-time winner of the National Jewish Book Award with nonfiction work published in The New York Times, The Washington Post and more, Horn speaks with B'nai B'rith CEO Dan Mariaschin about her book in a world once again witnessing alarming spikes in anti-Semitism and the whitewashing of Jewish history.

Few writers or historians have thoroughly explored the subtle ways in which non-Jewish societies – including contemporary America – pressure or gaslight Jews into modifying or erasing their own identity altogether.

The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters During World War II

The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters During World War II

June 2, 2021

With her new book, “The Light of Days: The Untold Story of Women Resistance Fighters in Hitler’s Ghettos,” author Judy Batalion has written one of the most important stories of World War II.

When the Nazis occupied Poland, many Jewish women joined the resistance and risked their lives to sabotage the regime.

Batalion, who spent 12 years putting the book together, joins the B'nai B'rith podcast with CEO Dan Mariaschin to highlight this crucial but often overlooked story of defiance.

Director Steven Spielberg has already optioned the book for a motion picture and signed Batalion to co-write the screenplay.
