A Jewish Life on Three Continents

Lee Shai Weissbach

Beginning with an account of two trips Frieden and his wife took in the late 1930s and covering the years of World War II and its aftermath, this portion of Frieden’s memoir has something of a stream-of-consciousness feel to it. The space Frieden devotes to World War II itself is surprisingly limited, given the significance of that event for history in general, and for the fate of world Jewry in particular. Frieden does write somewhat more, however, about the situation in Palestine and about the struggle for Israel’s independence as it developed during the forties. He was, after all, still living through the period of that struggle as he worked on completing his memoir, and the creation of the State of Israel was one of his fondest hopes.
