Rather than concluding his memoir before he reaches the end of 1947 or the beginning of 1948, that is, before he reaches the time during which Frieden was actually setting down the story of his life, he allows his text to evolve into a commentary on current events in this chapter. Beyond simple narrative sections in this final chapter, there are passages relating family history and there are pedagogic digressions, including one regarding the interior arrangement of synagogues and another reviewing the history of the Jewish presence in England. There are also judgmental evaluations of individuals and of institutions. The reader gets a good sense of Frieden’s enmity toward the British administration in Palestine. It is noteworthy, as well, that Frieden chastises those in the Yishuv who opposed cooperation between Jews and Arabs in the period of the mandate.
