Author Roald Dahl’s family apologises for anti-Semitic comments

The family of Roald Dahl have quietly apologised for the late author’s “prejudiced” anti-Semitic comments.

Dahl – who is considered “one of the world’s most imaginative, successful and loved storytellers” – penned the children’s classics “Matilda”, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “James and the Giant Peach”.

While he died in 1990 aged 74, his family have finally acknowledged anti-Semitic comments made more than two decades ago that tarnished his legacy.

An undated post on Dahl’s official website said the family “deeply apologize for the lasting and understandable hurt caused by some of Roald Dahl’s statements.”
