Repeat the Mystery of Golgotha

Light of truth

“Whence, therefore, in another context, the necessity to repeat the mystery of Golgotha to once again become its contemporary. …By simply analyzing the Jewish will to be, which posits itself anew. The experience of Hitlerism was not sensed by every-one to be one of those periodic returns to barbarism which, all in all, is fundamentally in order, and about which one consoles oneself by recalling the punishment that strikes it. The re-course of Hitlerian Anti-Semitism to racial myth reminded the Jew of the irremissibility of his being.”

E. Levinas,
“Being Jewish”
