It Can Happen Here”: Antisemitism, Gender, and the American Past
Pamela Nadell, American University
In 1942, an anonymous “Jewess,” looking across the ocean, wrote “It Can Happen Here.” Her cri de coeur, published in a New York women’s magazine, pled with its readers to bring to an end to the “ever-increasing prejudice” she and her family faced. With antisemitism rising today at home and abroad, American University Professor Pamela Nadell, author of the award-winning America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today, discusses American Jewish women in the past facing antisemitism, how it affected their lives, and how they responded.
