Masha Gessen walked from the haunting video

Masha Gessen “walked from the haunting video of Kibbutz Be’eri to the clanking iron faces” of the artist Menashe Kadishman’s installation “Fallen Leaves” in Berlin’s Jewish Museum, and, Gessen writes, “I thought of the thousands of residents of Gaza killed in retaliation for the lives of Jews killed by Hamas. Then I thought that, if I were to state this publicly in Germany, I might get in trouble.”  (The New Yorker, 12/9/23; The Washington Post, 12/14/23; Literary Hub, 12/15/23; The New Statesman, 12/18/23)
