How did George Soros become targeted by the right— blamed for the world’s ills and even accused of being a Nazi? Moment editor-in-chief Nadine Epstein in conversation with Bard College president Leon Botstein, a contributor to the new book George Soros: A Life in Full and former University of Hartford president Humphrey Tonkin, translator of Soros’ father’s memoir, Masquerade: The Incredible True Story of How George Soros’ Father Outsmarted the Gestapo, discuss the false claims and antisemitism surrounding Soros as well as efforts to support democracy throughout the world.
This program is part of a Moment series on antisemitism supported by the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.

Nadine was wonderful under difficult circumstance of Leon Botstein repeatedly going off on tangential speeches. I greatly admired her courage in the initial publication of Mr. Soros’ true story, and again with this presentation. Thank you.
Again, I thank you, Nadine; as with your article that I originally commented on, you did an excellent presentation on behalf of George Soros and Holocaust survivors in general, with a little help from your friends. After reading your original article, I had an opportunity to bring up the subject to a friend who, unfortunately, reads and believes many conspiracy theories. It didn’t go too well. As I spoke to her about the facts concerning George Soros, she (and others I brought up the subject with) mixed his early history with modern politics.
You are so right to keep these separate, especially with your understanding of Holocaust survivors as “our sacred elders”; they won’t be around much longer!
