Unpacking antisemitism with David Baddiel & Alex Ryvchin

Recorded at the Sydney Jewish Writers Festival, 27 August 2023


David Baddiel, author of bestselling non-fiction polemic ‘Jews Don’t Count’, joins us to unpack antisemitism with Alex Ryvchin. ‘Jews Don’t Count’ is a book for people who consider themselves on the right side of history and how one type of racism has been left out of this fight. Alex Ryvchin will be discussing his latest book, ‘The 7 Deadly Myths’. This is a very timely conversation.

ALEX RYVCHIN is co-Chief Executive Officer of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry, the author of internationally acclaimed books of history and politics, and a best-selling children’s author. He writes for leading publications and speaks, debates and teaches around the world on the Arab-Israeli conflict, foreign and national affairs, antisemitism and the Holocaust, and religion and identity, and is a regular commentator on TV and radio.
