Essays on Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, and the Left (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


In April 1945, Jean Amery was liberated from the Bergen Belsen concentration camp. A political prisoner, he had been brutally tortured by the Nazis, and had also survived both Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen. His experiences during the Holocaust were made famous by his book At the Mind's Limits: Contemplations by a Survivor of Auschwitz and Its Realities.

Essays on Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, and the Left features a collection of essays by Amery translated into English for the first time. Although written between 1966 and 1978, Amery's insights remain fresh and contemporary, and showcase the power of his thought.

Originally written when leftwing antisemitism was first on the rise, Amery's searing prose interrogates the relationship between anti-Zionism and antisemitism and challenges the international left to confront its failure to think critically and reflectively.

JEAN AMERY was born in Vienna in 1911 as Hanns Mayer. As a young man, he studied philosophy and wanted to be a novelist. When the Nazis came to power in Austria in 1938, he fled to Belgium and joined the resistance there. He was caught distributing leaflets and was tortured and sent to Auschwitz. He survived Auschwitz and after the war made his home in Brussels, changing his name to Jean Amery. His most famous works include At the Mind's Limits, On Aging, and On Suicide.
