Jewish Cowardice: A Reevaluation

In his book “The Interpretation of Dreams,” Sigmund Freud recounts a conversation he had with his father Jakob, when he was 10 or 12 years old. Jakob said to his son: “While I was a young man, I was walking one Saturday on a street in the village where you were born; I was handsomely…
