Weekly Roundup - 7/10/23

This week: For our Spring issue Responsa, the Jewish Currents editorial team considers how Germany’s relentlessly pro-Israel Holocaust memory culture reinscribes German nationalism while evacuating Jewishness—and Palestinianness—of meaning. And a comic by Jenny Lesser Holman captures a conversation with her father about Jewish identity.

In a new episode of our podcast, On the Nose, executive editor Nora Caplan-Bricker and news editor Aparna Gopalan are joined by Middle East Eye senior reporter Azad Essa to talk about the the India–Israel alliance and the findings from Gopalan’s explosive report on the Hindu nationalists using the pro-Israel playbook.

In light of the IDF’s invasion of Jenin this week, we’re sending you senior reporter Alex Kane’s February explainer on the Israeli army’s recent series of deadly raids in the occupied West Bank.
