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.
