More on Misha
Posted by: Keir Graff

More on the case of Misha Defonseca’s Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years. On Slate, Blake Eskin asks Why did it take so long for a far-fetched Holocaust memoir to be debunked? Good question.

Why did people take her seriously for so long? Raising questions about the authenticity of someone’s Holocaust testimony, however implausible it seems, is a joyless task and one that puts you in unsavory company.

Oh, right. That.

But, boy, is it ever implausible. And there were plenty of people who didn’t buy it, even before it was published.
