“Suddenly Jews” written by Hartmut Ludwig and translated, revised, and edited by Martin Nicolaus chronicles the horrendous story of the Nazi campaign of hate and violence against Jews in Germany. It tells about people who as result of Nazi laws examining church baptismal records were then labeled and persecuted as Jews, no matter how many generations earlier this conversion had happened. Moreover, “Suddenly Jews” reveals the brave resistance of a group of dedicated Christians who befriended and defended the Jews. The names and work of these heroic people are documented. Each player is given a human face and their place in history honored. Each act is noted and interwoven with others to create a resilient network based on empathy, courage, and persistence. As I read this brutal history, it evoked the current news of fleeing international refugees, hate crimes against Black churches, shootings at Planned Parenthood, police violence against people of color, and targeting of Muslims by U.S. politicians. There is much to be learned by examining this carefully researched past and avoiding horrendous mistakes in the future. This book of twentieth century history is sadly more relevant as each day passes in these teen years of the 21st century.
