Event Description:

Join us for the exciting launch of The Accusation by Ed Berenson (Professor & Chair, Department of History, NYU). Invited panelists will discuss the disturbing story of one town's embrace of an insidious anti-Jewish myth. The Accusation is a shocking and perceptive exploration of American and European responses to antisemitism.
