  • Emanuela Rubinstein says:

    Dear Simon, I feel very privileged that you are reading my books. I also found Riccardo Fontana and Kurt Gertein fascinating, and based on real people. They are truely saint-like humans.
    I hope you will like Five Selves. In it I tried to articulate some of my observations, both on life in Israel and the modern world in general.
    Many thanks!

    Having read your book “The Devil, the Saints and the Church,” I think it addresses the issue to some extent of whether or not the individual is responsible for the crime of the holocaust as against supernatural forces and predestination by which they would have been controlled and limited in their actions. Although I do not believe that anything would have happened outside of God’s control from a Biblical perspective in the supernatural sense the event of the holocaust might to some certainly bring into question his essential “care” or could cast doubt upon his essential existence. And so on page 38 you write about how Doctor Mengele is rather made a Job like figure in the play (albeit in a negative sense) in asking God to reveal himself in history in response to the great evil he was committing at Auschwitz.

    Also of interest are the historical reasons given for the church’s silence at the genocide given in chapter 4, the possible conflict between Roman Catholicism and Greek Orthodoxy being a possible influence but certainly the church’s support of Hitler to stop the spread of communism into catholic Europe from Russia is likely to have been a motive for ignoring the “sacrifice” of the Jews. Also the “neutrality” argument raised by the play that the church ultimately wished to broker a peace deal between Germany and the Allies in the role of a mediator may account for their silence when they should have acted.

    All in all a good read and quite thought-provoking, especially about the characters of Doctor Mengele, Riccardo Fontana and Kurt Gerstein and others and the attitudes, principles (or lack of them in Mengele’s case) their characters express such as the theme of self sacrifice.

    I also read the first two stories of “Five Selves” so far “A Bird’s Flight” has vivid descriptions of the skyline of Chicago and a dream-like mood to the story and much speculation regarding the mysterious “host.” “Earings” describes a girl growing up, her close relationship with her grandmother and her discovering her femininity in finding the perfect dress to wear.
