This is an example of a religious stereotype of Jews in the book. I feel like I have heard of Nazis trying to get the right look for their people and being willing to intermarry with others. I am not sure that this is true though. I also couldn't help but wonder if the idea of marrying a Jew in order to introduce some of their characteristics into the race is based in some sort of fact. Does anyone know? Michael?
Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.
