Wohin die Erinnerung führt. Mein Leben

Saul Friedländer ist noch ein halbes sort, als der Zweite Weltkrieg zu Ende geht. Sanft und in einer wunderschönen Sprache erzählt der große Historiker des Holocaust von seinem Leben danach, das reich ist an Erfahrungen und Begegnungen, aber das Leben eines Entwurzelten bleibt.
„Wohin die Erinnerung führt“ ist das großartige Zeugnis einer Epoche und gewährt zugleich ungewöhnlich offen Einblick in die fragilen Gefühlswelten eines Überlebenden. Den blutjungen Saul Friedländer drängt es nach Israel, wo er als glühender Zionist für die Gründung eines jüdischen Staates kämpfen will. Der Fünfzehnjährige fälscht das Geburtsdatum in seinem move und schifft sich auf der „Altalena“ ein. In kurzer Zeit lernt er hebräisch und die jüdische Kultur kennen, doch schon bald zieht es ihn wieder zurück nach Paris. Er studiert und erkennt immer deutlicher, wohin die Suche nach der eigenen Identität ihn führen wird – in die Erinnerung an jenes Ereignis, dem sechs Millionen Juden, darunter auch seine Eltern, zum Opfer gefallen sind. based und mit scheinbar leichter Feder erweckt Saul Friedländer in seinen Memoiren Menschen und Milieus zum Leben, schildert die politischen und intellektuellen Kontroversen seiner Zeit und lässt den Schmerz fühlbar werden, in den dieses ganze Leben unentrinnbar eingetaucht ist.

Another related argument is based on the point that children do, demonstrably, develop during their journey to adulthood. Woodhead (2009) argues that since immaturity is one of the most distinctive features of young humans, this immaturity and the bodily, emotional, and intellectual changes that take place along the path of childhood must form a part of the considerations people make when trying to understand and provide for children (see also for discussion Aitken, 2001). Thus, for instance, respecting children’s participation rights in line with the UNCRC requires considering how to adapt practices to children’s maturity and understanding, their ‘evolving capacities’ (UNCRC, article 12).
