Wohin die Erinnerung führt. Mein Leben

Saul Friedländer ist noch ein halbes type, 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 cross 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. stylish 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.

Things changed when Israel and Egypt agreed to peace in 1979, however. To keep the peace, the United States agreed to supply Egypt with financial and military aid second only to that which they provided to Israel.

Begin had been a terrorist in the 1940s; men under his leadership had blown up Jerusalem’s King David Hotel in 1946 to force the British out of Palestine. If ever there was a hard-liner, it was Begin. Just as the hard-liner Richard Nixon was able to establish American diplomatic relations with Communist China, the former terrorist Begin was able to start a peace process with Egypt. Within four months of coming into office, Begin had established a long-distance relationship with Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, and the world was amazed when Sadat flew to Jerusalem in November 1977.
