It is with great sadness that JBS acknowledges the passing of one of our founders and inspiration, Kenneth Schwartz. Kenny was always a happy, positive and supportive friend who worked alongside us to encourage discussion and raise awareness about issues within the Jewish community. An activist and supporter for many causes, Kenny was intelligent, articulate and passionate, but more than all else he was kind and considerate. He will be missed as a colleague and friend. May his family find comfort among the mourners of Jerusalem.
Anne Frank: The Book, The Life, The Afterlife by Francine Prose
A Jewish Book Reviews Exclusive
Isn't it odd, asks Francine Prose, that Anne Frank, who has sold thirty million books in 65 languages, is almost never recognized for her writing? Prose goes to great lengths to make the seemingly counterintuitive case that the world has not really taken Anne Frank seriously. While much of the information she presents is not new, she marshals it in detailed, thought-provoking ways. Prose joins Philip Roth and Cynthia Ozick as one of the few writers to discuss Anne Frank's literary abilities in any depth.
