You Look Like a Jew

Cloé Korman

In her autobiographical essay You look like a Jew, Cloé Korman pursues and expands on a discussion she first opened in AOC, on the French habit of distinguishing between anti-Semitism and racism. The book opens with a comment made one day by her grandmother: “Tie up your hair or you’ll look like a Jew”. With this exhortation to be more discreet, to conform to a specific physical norm, the child of Jewish refugees inquires into identity labels, but also the perverse strategy of dividing up xenophobic hatred, and its disastrous political consequences.
