Goethe and A Survivor’s Inspiration

Lothar Midas (1875-1963)

Dear Friends,

A few days ago, while engaged in a little “Spring Cleaning” of our files, we were very surprised to discover Bill’s grandfather Lothar Midas’ eulogy from October 1963. What struck us and was profoundly moving was Rabbi Faber’s mention of Bill’s grandfather’s favorite line from a Goethe poem (see paragraph 4 of eulogy) and CLICK HERE for the entire poem.
 

After reading the poem and reflection on the particular line, “Let man be noble, generous and good”, we felt we had been provided a hint of how this one survivor managed to triumph over the darkest of evil and incredible personal loss.

Given the timing of our discovery, we wanted to share it before the beginning of Passover.

Best wishes,

Harriet and Bill
