The Question of Zionism: A Symposium on the Left and its Relationship to Israel
Israeli poet and scholar Hamutal Bar-Yosef (Professor Emerita, Ben-Gurion University) describes how research of Jewish mysticism was carried out by Jewish scholars and writers of literature who were influenced by Russian modern mystical trends, which at that period were spreading in Russia and in other European countries.
Memory and History: Reflections on Nuremberg and Other Places
Abraham Lincoln has said that history is to a nation what memory is to a person. Drawing on this idea, Ambassador John L. Hirsch (Senior Fellow, International Peace Institute) considers the role of memory and history in our understanding of conflict and recovery, drawing on his 2011 visit to Nuremberg and Theresienstadt as well as his recollections from serving as an American diplomat in South Africa during the transition from apartheid to nonracial multiparty democracy twenty years ago.
