Elie Wiesel – ein Leben gegen das Vergessen 
Reinhold Boschki
Elie Wiesel - A Life Against Forgetting
Memories of a Companion

Elie Wiesel, born ninety years ago, is one of the most defining figures of the 20th century. Born as the son of a devout Jewish grocer in the Carpathians (Hungary at that time), he was deported to Auschwitz at the age of 16 – and survived the death camp. His life’s work was to snatch the silenced voices of the victims from oblivion and confront inhumanity where he encounters it today. For the theologian and religious educator Reinhold Boschki, the encounter with Elie Wiesel became a formative experience: The young German became a student of the Jewish scholar in Boston and met him time and again: in Boston, Berlin, Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, Davos, Oslo and New York. In his book, Boschki recalls the life and work of Elie Wiesel from the perspective of a student and companion.

Im Fluss der Dinge 
Karl-Josef Kuschel
In the Flow of Things
Hermann Hesse and Bertolt Brecht in the Dialogue with Buddha, Lao Tzu and Zen

»Under heaven nothing is more soft and yielding than water. And yet, for attacking the solid and strong, nothing is better; it has no equal« (Tao Te Ching). Hermann Hesse and Bertolt Brecht are both world-famous German-language writers of the 20th century. As different as their lives and works may be, they are connected by their interest in the spiritual world of India, China and Japan. A dialogue with the great figures of the Asian world, with Buddha and Lao Tsu, has found expression in the works of both. And even if the results were different, both of them also mastered the special art of transforming the foreign into one`s own.

Von Abba bis Zorn Gottes 
Paul Petzel / Norbert Reck (eds.)
From Abba to Zealots
Understanding Judaism and clarifying misperceptions

In the 20th century, the major Christian churches took a new look at Judaism, and at the highest levels. At the same time, however, some of the old generalizations still persist in worship services and in schools: from the supposedly angry God of the Old Testament to the Pharisees as the embodiment of petty rule-followers.
