As CEO of ADL (the Anti-Defamation League), Jonathan Greenblatt has made it his personal mission to demonstrate how antisemitism, racism, and other insidious forms of intolerance can destroy a society. It Could Happen Here offers a bracing primer on how we—as individuals, as organizations, and as a society—can strike back against antisemitism and hate. Just because it could happen here, he shows, does not mean that the unthinkable is inevitable.
