埃利·维瑟尔谦卑的高贵

巴黎——这一切起源于一个逝去的世界,这个世界位于罗塞尼亚、布科维纳和加利西亚之间,这片被遗忘的土地曾经是哈布斯堡帝国和欧洲犹太人的荣耀所在。70年后,这个世界只剩下断壁残垣的宫殿、空空荡荡的巴洛克式教堂以及被夷为平地后再未重建的犹太教堂。现在,这个世界又失去了最后一位见证者:埃利·维瑟尔。

维瑟尔在这个消失的世界中顽强地存活了下来,并如凤凰涅槃般浴火重生。带着恐惧和颤抖,他将自己的第二次生命奉献给这个世界,让那些被毁灭的人得以重生。对我而言,正是这些让暗夜上帝的使者等书的作者显得与众不同。

1945年以后的那些年,维瑟尔的声望直逼那些最伟大的伟人。他像耶胡迪·梅纽因一样收获了全球民众同样博大而经久不衰的敬佩之情。但他从未忘记那个普通犹太人耶胡迪的身份,他只是一个在纽约或巴黎通过海关时仍会紧张到心跳的幸存者。

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
