New York Times on Shapira Affair, 1883

I've posted about the Shapira forgery (?) here and antisemitic coverage of it here. To add to the latter category, this article appeared in the New York Times on Aug 30, 1883, another article of record for the Newspaper of Record (yeah, yeah, I know it was 1883).

  1. A very revealing article - says more about the author, than the subject. The authenticity of the Schapira manuscripts is still in doubt - not all agree that it was a forgery. Unfortunatly, we will never know for sure.

    I feel so sorry for Schapira, who had to deal with people like this every day. It must have broken his spirit.
