In 1949 I was interviewed by corporate representative for a possible position in his company. It seemed to me that he was going to offer me a job when he suddenly asked, “You’re not Jewish by any chance, are you Mr. Schubert?”

I would not lie, so answered, “Yes, I am.”

He then said, “I have no prejudice against Jews, but the head of the department in which you would work has a Jewish quota and that quota if filled.”

Today, 70 year later, anti-semitism is still alive and thriving. In fact, the rate of anti-semitism is rising at a rapid rate both in our country as well as abroad.
