The Lost Voice of Simon Rawidowicz
In the link below an academic Israeli blogger discusses a leading historian of Jewish philosophy, Simon Rawidowicz, who suppressed some of his own writings about the eviction of Palestinians from their lands in 1948. That suppressed chapter is now published in a new book: David N. Myers’ “Between Jew & Arab: The Lost Voice of Simon Rawidowicz”.
“May there not have to be among Jews in coming generations those who will call to justice the generations of the gatekeepers of the state who locked the gate to former residents of the land – and who thereby opened, through this closing, the door to their defamers and persecutors in surrounding countries. It is in your hands, guides of the current generation in the state, to safeguard those who will come after you from the verdict of that future day of retribution. May it not come, but if it does come, what will be the price that the children of ours sons and daughters will pay?”
