Terrible News: Robert Wistrich Has Died

Robert Wistrich, the distinguished and gentlemanly historian of anti-Semitism, has died suddenly at the age of 70. His article “Judeophobia and Marxism” appeared in our December 2014 issue, and his “The Changing Face of Anti-Semitism” in our March 2013 issue. Stephen Daisley took the measure of Robert’s work in his review of the masterly From Ambivalence to Betrayal. I will miss him, and COMMENTARY will miss him, and everyone who believes in the importance of serving as witness to Jew-hatred will mourn him.
