Best friend back in Munich of my maternal great-grandmother's sister's son-in-law. Knew my great-grandaunt who didn't survive the camps. German Jews were different. So we think.

Again: this has nothing to do with "Jewish Texts and History."

My mother dined next to him, exchanged pleasantries, at a Bohemian Club event in Manhattan sometime in the mid-1980s.

He was a Mass-murderer. War criminal. "Etc."

Of course, I've often wondered what philosophical connection (if any) K. had to Edelstein's old friends, Leo Strauss and Hannah Arendt. Strauss and Edelstein were intimate friends; Arendt and Edelstein both studied together under Karl Jaspers in Heidelberg (1926), yet I sadly find no information detailing their relationship (personal papers, burned).
