A 2000-year-old monster: My experience with anti-Semites

Professor Max Kamien with his wife Jackie.

I am a secular Jew, the son of Polish parents and grandparents who were perspicacious and lucky enough to escape eastern Europe before World War II.

My French-born wife is a Holocaust survivor. We know that anti-Semitism is a 2000-year-old monster that lives just below the surface, waiting for the opportunity to rise and devour us.
