    Dear Ofer, as you quote Joachim Fest: the Fests have received a rather unpleasant mentioning in the preface to Tuvia Tenebom's "I sleep in Hitler's room" whose German edition was barred from appearing at Rowohlt editors by Alexander Fest, Joachim's son, although it was precisely Rowohlt which had requested Tenebom to travel in Germany and write a book about his impressions. Meanwhile, it was told that Tenenbom's book would appear at Suhrkamp by the title "Allein unter Deutschen", but it doesn't seem like that has already happened. Is it not astonishing that a book which demanded a good deal of work (interviews, travelling, elaboration... ) has such difficulties to appear in our oh so hard working German homeland, while a definitively bad poem, which besides all its love for the abstract concept of peace, shows rather contempt for the feelings of the people not only in Israel - who for example in Nahariya and Sderot had to actually face Iranian supported agression - but in this whole "vom Wahn okkupierte Region" (region which is befallen by delusion), can appear in the SZ, in La Repubblica, in the NY Times and who knows where else?
