'Mauvais Juif': Journalist Piotr Smolar on the meaning of Jewish identity
In Perspective, we took a closer look at what it means to be Jewish and how the sacrifices of our forefathers can weigh on our faith. Our Perspective guest is Le Monde's Jerusalem correspondent Piotr Smolar. His grandfather was a Communist resistance hero in the Minsk ghetto before escaping the atrocities of the Nazi regime, while his father fled the growing anti-Semitism and student crackdown of 1968 in Poland. Smolar has just had his new book "Mauvais Juif" ("Bad Jew") published in France.
