Books for the Passover Season By HAROLD U. RIBALOV (Copyright. 1961. Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.) During this Passover season, when we look back into our past and reflect on the shape of the future, it is within the spirit of Passover to judge the creative efforts of fel- low Jews, especially in the field of literature. For it is in our books that we live and display our tenacious charac- teristics-of survival. This will not be a "survey" of books, with lists and publishers and prices of books. Instead, I wish only to call attention to a handful of volumes, each with a special qu.a!iy 0f/.ts own, vhich will enrich, or inspire or edu- cate. any reader Who pick it up aid scans it."Some of these titles already are well known and have attained the tatus of best-seller. A few never will. Some you may never have heard about. All, however, are worthy of your time and your thought. Because we devote our thougl)ts to theJ!.nity and history 5TTh'FefFIli 6'le in the-Passover period, I think it is proper that I begin with those books which deal with the immediate, but dark, past, the years of destruction and persecution. It is perhaps hopeful that volumes of the period of Jewish extermination are no longer thrust aside, but are selected by book clubs, bought by the tens of tfmflghdg;:,afid;::,discussed by ordinary men and women who, a few years ago, wanted to forget the horrors of the Hitler years. William L. Shirer's Book William L. Shirer's "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" offers more factual material on the Hitler age than any single book I know. It is a huge volume (nearly 1,200 pages of narration) and sells for $10. Yet it has been a top best-seller for some five months. It is an impressive and massive work. It not only recapitulates the entire Nazi era, but it is authoritative history because Mr. Shirer I has had at his disposal .the confidential archives of the German Government, of Heinrich Himmler's secret police and secret papers and private diaries and conference re- ports and transcripts of telephone conversations of Nazi leaders which had been tapped by the Air Ministry of Herman Goering. Thus, this is, as of the moment, the defin- itive history of the Third Reich. Mr. Shirer, who as a correspondent covered Germany, is not the usual "ob- jective" historian. He hates the Nazis but one can excuse his hatred when one reads the material he makes public for us. How German businessmen vied for contracts in- volving torture chambers and other instrumentalities of horror is a chapter of modern history recorded for the first time in Mr. Shirer's illuminating volume. The book is full of new insights, new information, but it still tells the an- cient tale of persecution against the Jews. If you read no other book this year, find the time for "The lise and Fall of the Third Reich." "The Last of the Just" A second title which cannot be overlooked, indeed which will sear your memory, is Andre Schwarz-Bart's "The Last of the Just." This book, too, has become a best- seller. Don't allow this label to frighten you. Read it any- way. Written in gentle, lyrical prose, it stresses the story of Jewish suffering, and introduces the philosophical ques- tion: Why is the Jew placed on earth? Is it to suffer? Mr. Schwarz-Bart, who uses the legend of the Lamed ovnik the tale of the thirty-six Just Men who anonymously walk the earth, recapitulatesthrough the re-telling of Jewish historyall the violent anti-Jewish acts of those who hated the Jews throughout the centuries. His final hero is the Last of the Just, a man who willingly joins women and children, all innocent victims, in a caravan to a Nazi death chamber. It is a bookrich in symbolism and even if its subject is horror, the form of the narrative is tender. Written in French, it was a best-seller in Europe and it has caught on in the United States as well. It is a book you won't forget. It is an artistic distillation of the factual re- porting of, Mr. Shirer. Taken together they are two sides of the same coin. The Shirer book lacks the intensity of the Schwarz-Bart, and the SchwarzBart scope of the Shirer. Yet they are alike in that they are passionately concerned with the sad tale of the destruction of the Jew- sh people. Memorable Works The other titles I have in mind are less tragic and for quite other reasons rather memorable. They are Yael Dayan' "Envy the Frightened"; Ephriam Kinshon's "Look Back, Mrs. Lot!"; and a "sleeper," that is, a totally un- known and unsung new novel. "The Human Season" by Edward Lewis Wallant. You will recall that when Yael Dayan's first novel, "New Face in the Mirror," was issued, Miss Dayan was "Hug-Me-Tite," an original musical comedy by Richard Willner, will be presented again this season by B'nai B'rith Over- lake Lodge and Chapter on the evenings of March 25 and 26 at the Temple Center of Temple De Hirsch.

All members are requested to attend this im- portant meeting. daring, to show little emotion or sentimentality. Nimrod the hero, learns his lessons well. As a result, he fails ab- jectly in establishing human relationships with his friends his parents, his wife and, later, his own son. Miss Dayan spares no one. The boys who grow up in the kibbutzim are alienated from city life. The city people don't under- stand the kibbutz product. And Nimrod himself, admi- rable'in many ways, is a harsh, unlikable person. What saves the little novel is Miss Dayan's complete candor, her ]willingness to face up to unpleasant situations. Her book !is good fiction but it is more than that. It is a mirror into :which we must all look if we are to understand the con- temporary Israeli who is, after all, the end product of the original Passover story. "Look Back, Mrs. Lot" The second book on Israel is Ephriam Kishon's satirical "Look Back, Mrs. Lot!" This is a most difficult volume to describe for satire either comes off or it doesn't. Mr Kishon is a genuine satirist and so most of his material, funny as it is, also is penetrating and uncomfortable. Yet the reader will learn a great deal about Israel that cannot be studied in the history books or in the newspapers. Mr. Kishon doesn't hesitate to point out that red tape is com- mon in Israel and that a man can sit in:a Government of- fice, waiting for a permit, and end up high in Government circles, simply because he happened to be in the office! He will call out attention to the arrogance of the doctors, who know they are in short supply. He will bear down hard on kibbutzniks who are imprisoned in their dogma. H e will, in a word, laugh at everyone and everything in Israel. At the same time, you are aware that he loves the country and the people, and so you hccept Mr. Kishon as part of that country. His fellow Israelislove him. He is their favorite humorist and "Look Back, Mrs. Lot!" tells why. It is fun and it is good fun. And now to a discovery, to Edward Lewis Wallant's "The Human Season." This is a deceptively brief novel less than 200 pages long, which deals withe Jewish plumber, Joe Berman, recently a widower. And this is Mr. Wallant's tale: how this immigrant Jew, religious and i passionate, agonizes over the sudden death of his wife, if and how he eventually adjusts to his great loss. It is a!l simple story, of love and death and loneliness. The basic elements are common enough. What Mr. Wallant makes of them serves to make an uncommon book.
