By Soma Morgenstern, Ludwig Lewisohn

That pagan onslaught upon the Jewish humans which destroyed one third
of that folks, that crime Lord Russell of Liverpool referred to as the best crime in all historical past, has been documented in a dozen languages.

Through gradual and hard years of
impassioned artistic attempt, Soma
Morgenstern has summed up, distilled, symbolized the incomparable tragedy of his humans into an primarily poetic shape that's transparent with a very good highbrow readability, in addition as
majestic with the grandeur of the subject he treats. it is going to, without doubt, melt the calloused judgment of right and wrong and
shake to its intensity the center of Christian in addition to Jew. and it'll accomplish that no longer as outcry or propaganda, yet as tale, as image, as nice epic artwork in a kind of singular purity.

The other replied: 'When the Messiah comes, the whole world will be a Holy Land. ' "The Torah scribe could not distinguish the voice of one of his sons from the voice of the other. And so he arose and listened and looked out at the window, in order to de­ termine which of his two sons was of the one, which of the other opinion. "But the children, although they could not see their father at the window, nor had heard him step to the win­ dow, did not continue their discourse.
