Auschwitz +60

"No wonder many of the survivors went on to Israel. No doubt, they wanted to get to a place where they could leave their victimhood behind and assert responsibility over their fate, a place where they could connect with the culture of their forefathers, to the language of the Bible, and to the land that gave birth to the Bible."
Aharon Appelfeld reflects on Auschwitz liberated, sixty years on.
