In the words of Berthold Brecht from Mutter Courage,
but in translation: FRATERNIZE,just do it on your own.
Wahlverwandschaft, ( kinship by choice) indeed.
We cannot choose our relatives, but we can choose our friends,
You most certainly are not one of mine.
Accusing me of reverse discrimination or simple discrimination
is despicable. Now privacy is equivalent to prejudice!
Of course you know me so well, that you know that I have two gentile
daughters in law and three non Jewish grandchildren, that I count among my
close friends Matei Calinescu and Ciprian Foias, both of whom have more
decency and human feeling in their small fingers, than do you in your whole
I am sure many of you are horrified at my calling a spade a spade.
I do not believe in pushing the dirt under the carpet.
If for some of you the reunion is a tourist trip, certainly hire Ioana
( call her Jane if you must) to be your tourist agent or guide, she is
a poor Gentile graduate student who needs the money of those forever rich
Jidans. All her problems stem from the fact that she is working on a Jewish
subject and that the librarian of the archives is Jewish and because of that
will not risk sending out archival materials by mail. Of course were he a
good solid non-Jew he would do what no librarian of any archives in the
whole world would do!
If you want to hold a scientific or academic symposium, there are more
centrally located halls of academia than the hotel Cheremosh.
Suceava University might fit the bill nicely.
If the reunion is for you an opportunity to be with people who share a
common heritage, a communal memory an emotional attachment, not just an
intellectual curiosity and a pragmatic purpose, stand up and be counted.
