  • Hatred of Jews Cost Holocaust Museum Shooter His Marriage

    by Rebecca Honig Friedman

    The ex-wife of James von Brunn, who allegedly shot and killed a security guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., told ABC News that his hateful views led to the demise of their marriage:

    Von Brunn’s ex-wife, who asked that her name not be used, said she is “totally against” his alleged actions today, calling the incident “very, very sad. Horrible.”
    The woman said she and the shooting suspect were married for a decade, but divorced about 30 years ago because she disagreed with his extremist views, which she said she learned about after they married.
    They had one son, Erik, but, “Our son despised James’ beliefs like I did,” she said.
    Erik von Brunn lived with his father in Easton, Pa., and Annapolis, Md., but now is a student at a college in Maryland and no longer lives with him, the woman added.

    Forgive my skepticism, but a decade seems a long time to put up with that kind of hatred, if indeed it was the real reason she divorced von Braun. And if she despised his views enough to divorce him on those grounds, why would she allow her impressionable son to grow up in his home?
