SHORT STORY REVIEW I Am Not a Jew by John Biguenet

SHORT STORY REVIEW I Am Not a Jew by John Biguenet – As Mr. and Mrs. Anderson travel in Europe, Mr. Anderson explores to find himself at a Jewish cemetery.  He notes photographs, dates, ages, changes and  trends.  He’s so engrossed he doesn’t hear the local teen neo-Nazi punks coming up the path behind him.  They start harassing him, asking him if he is a Jew.  In his panic and his fear, Anderson manages to eventually get the grammar right for the German phrase “I am not a Jew”. The owner of the hotel invites him to have a drink with him.  He tells the old man about his experience in the graveyard and it is the old man who reassures him that there was nothing else he could have done.
