A Jewish Life on Three Continents

No longer recounting the past, the ultimate chapter of Frieden’s memoir turned into a series of discrete observations, somewhat like journal entries, in which he recorded what was going on presently in his life and in the world around him, as well as his reactions to those developments. While it is beyond the scope of this volume to publish all the entries Frieden recorded in the journal he had begun keeping by early 1948, the year was such a momentous period both for world Jewry and Menachem Mendel Frieden personally, that it is worth reproducing selections from Frieden’s journal in order to gain a sense of how Frieden’s life proceeded in the period immediately after he finished composing his memoir. These selections reflect his what was going on in the wider world around him, with particular focus on the struggle for the creation of a Jewish state.
