Format: Paperback
Emil Fackenheim was one of the great Jewish thinkers of the twentieth century. He was a person of great integrity who deeply cared for the Jewish people. His understanding of Jerusalem as the spiritual center of the Jewish people was one major element of his thought. His concern with Jewish survival after the Shoah was another central element. As a survivor of Sachsenhausen concentration camp, as one who was trained as a Rabbi, and became an academic philosopher he had a background which moved him to a very deep reading and thinking about Jewish history. All this comes to focus in 'To Mend the World' where he outlines for the Jewish people centered in Jerusalem a way of hope toward the future. He does this through reading of history and midrashim traditional religious texts, and creating a Jewish world of thought of his own.

To Mend the World is a must read for any serious student of the Shoah. The writing is absolutely brilliant and each page makes one pause in serious reflection. I consistently refer back to this marvelous manuscript.

Format: Paperback
Coming from the Jewish Virtual Library which quotes Dr. F thusly, as one of the reasons why the Shoah is unique. Now i do not know why it is important to claim it is unique, but if this is one of the criteria, then its wrong.Actually, as a jew myself, i am not at all certain that its useful or neccessary to make this distinction. In the case of the Armenian Shoah, i think the parallel is exact in fact.

"Jewish birth (actually mere evidence of "Jewish blood") was sufficient to warrant the punishment of death. Fackenheim notes that this feature distinguished Jews from Poles and Russians who were killed because there were too many of them"

We know, the the Nazi's considered the Poles untermenschen, and began killing Poles at Auschwitz, just because they were Poles, before they began killing Jews there, to the tune of 150,000, and planned, over the long term, to genocide them, too.

Certainly being Armenian was enough reason to be killed by the Turks and Kurds?

So, so. There is meaning in everything if you look for it, said Arnold Zweig, Maybe there is something to Fackenheim too, I don't see it.
