The Charlie Hebdo massacre claimed the life of French Jewish psychoanalyst Elsa Cayat, who wrote a column for the satirical publication. Benjamin Ivry mourns her passing.
The terrorist attack in Paris took the life of French-Jewish cartoonist Georges Wolinski who was the subject of the 2012 memoir ‘George, If You Only Knew.’
The French Jewish cartoonist Georges Wolinski has long entertained his compatriots with drawings spoofing romance and sexuality, as well as making serious points about politics and society. In collections such as “Everything is Politics” (Tout est politique) from Les editions Temps actuels and “The Right-Wing Plan” (Le Programme de la droite) Wolinski offers merciless caricatures of the French far-right wing politician Jean-Marie Le Pen.
