Abstract:

A memoir by Anders, a Jewish philosopher and writer, who was born as Günther Siegmund Stern in Breslau in 1902. In 1916 his family moved to Berlin, and in 1933 he fled Germany with his wife, Hannah Arendt, whom he had married in 1929. The marriage ended in 1937. They went first to France, and later made it, separately, to the U.S. This diary relates to his life in the U.S. from March 1941. Ch. 8 (pp. 269-426), "Besuch im Hades", describes a trip made by Anders to Auschwitz and Wrocław (Breslau) in 1966. Pp. 269-292 focus on his reflections regarding Auschwitz. He notes, inter alia, that it is difficult to grasp the total disappearance of the victims, the powerlessness imposed on the Jews by the Nazis in the concentration camps, even regarding their own death, and the murder of returning survivors in Eastern Europe after the war's end. Reflects, also, on the fate of Edith Stein. She was a student of Anders' father, the noted German psychologist and philosopher William Stern, and preceded Anders as a student of Husserl. Views Stein's conversion to Catholicism as a failed attempt to assimilate, and protests against plans by the Vatican to canonize her. Emphasizes that she tried in vain to gain an audience with the Pope between 1933-38, and that she was gassed in Auschwitz in 1942 as a Jew.
