As always, for my wife, Jamie, and my children, Lily and Nicholas


When Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that a riot was starting, he took water and washed his hands
in front of the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man's blood; see to that yourselves.” And all the people answered, “His
blood shall be on us and our children!”

—Matthew 27:24–25

Every misfortune that subsequently befell the Jews—from the destruction of Jerusalem to Auschwitz—carried an echo of that
invented blood pact from the trial.

—Ann Wroe,
Pontius Pilate

You have to be willingly ignorant of the past not to know where all this leads.

—Paul Krugman, the
New York Times
