The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Franz-Olivier Giesbert


Franz-Olivier Giesbert, a French journalist, author, and television host, is a vocal defender of Israel in French media. Earlier this year, Giesbert commended French President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks to leaders of the Jewish community that the government would take steps to define “anti-Zionism as a modern-day form of antisemitism.” Giesbert also has supported the United States’ decision to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. His latest book, Le Schmock (The Schmuck), explores through its fictional characters why Nazism was able to take hold in Germany. (Photo: Thesupermat / CC BY-SA 3.0)
