Anonymous asked: you ashamed to be Jewish? why dont respond when people ask you about that?
holy fuck no. okay. i’ll answer properly. yes, i’m (part) jewish. my family are holocaust survivors and because of this and the harsh antisemitic climate in europe i was always taught that my jewishness is —secret—. no branch of my family has kept it’s jewish last name. i think it’s weird to be “proud” of your ethnicity as i believe pride should be reserved for achievements but i am definitely glad to be part of such a rich culture. no shame. just paranoia, deep in my veins.as we walked around north london today amongst all the orthodox jews i felt deep sadness for the jews of europe. i wish the streets of budapest or krakow were still like that.
