German School Rescinds Job Offer to Jewish Philosopher Nancy Fraser over Her Criticism of Israel

HeadlineApr 11, 2024

The University of Cologne has rescinded a job offer to the Jewish American philosopher Nancy Fraser because she had signed a letter against Israel’s assault on Gaza. Fraser, who teaches at The New School, said, “I was canceled in the name of German responsibility for the Holocaust. This responsibility should also apply to Jewish people. But in Germany it is narrowed down to the state policy of the currently ruling Israeli government. Philosemitic McCarthyism sums it up quite well. A way to silence people under the pretext of supposedly supporting Jews.”
