JBBC MEMO 79

tomorrow afternoon (tuesday), 4.30-5.00pm, on bbc radio 4:
Primo Levi
(in the Great Lives series)

"Edmund de Waal chooses a writer he believes is one of the greatest of the modern age - Primo Levi, author of the Periodic Table.
Born in 1919 in Turin, Levi was an Italian Jew, one of the few deported to Auschwitz who would escape alive.
Primo Levi's account of his time in the camp, If This Is a Man, made him one of the first writers to document the Holocaust and it established his name around the world.
But Levi was not just a writer. He was a chemist, which gave him the skills that helped save his life in Auschwitz. It was also a day job he never gave up, and his passion for science remained a life-long pursuit.
After the War, Levi returned to Turin, married, had a family and wrote books in his spare time. He also became an enthusiastic letter-writer, corresponding with a new generation of Germans, to help them better understand the effects of the Nazi regime. Yet from his youth, Levi suffered from depression. In 1987 he took his own life, throwing himself down the stairwell in the house where he'd been born.
Ceramicist and author Edmund de Waal joins Matthew Parris to discuss how Levi's work inspired The Hare With Amber Eyes - his own memoir of his family's history as Jews in 19th and 20th century Europe. And biographer Ian Thomson, one of the last to interview Levi, explains why we shouldn't confuse Levi the writer with Levi the man."

last saturday, 2.30-4.00pm, on bbc radio 4:
The Last Tycoon, based on scott fitzgerald's unfinished novel
starring aidan gillen, jack shepherd and eharlotte emmerson
still available online, at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01shqcf

"Haunted by the death of his wife, 1930s Studio Head Monroe Stahr works eighteen hour days, each one a collision of talent meetings, set visits, script brainstorms and preview screenings. He's the "last of the princes", is making the studio millions and seems bullet proof.
At the end of an epic day, an earthquake breaks two water mains, sending a roaring river of water through the studio. And with it, the huge floating head of the goddess Shiva - a film prop.
As Stahr leaves his office to inspect the damage he sees the head floating by and on it two women, one of them the mesmerising Kathleen.
It's the beginning of a love affair that will destroy him.
As their affair plays out, we follow the disintegration of one of the great Hollywood legends, and also witness the darker heart of the Hollywood machine as a paranoid fear of communism comes to the fore.
It's a gorgeous, excruciating, heady tale - based on Fitzgerald's own painful experiences working in Hollywood as a screenwriter."

according to professor matthew bruccoli, pre-eminent expert on fitzgerald …

So thorough was Fitzgerald's identification with his hero that Stahr stands among the most compelling Jewish characters in American fiction.

In our time: Levi-Strauss

"Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss the work of the anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss.
One of twentieth-century France's most celebrated intellectuals, Lévi-Strauss attempted to show in his work that thought processes were a feature universal to humans, whether they lived in tribal rainforest societies or in the rich intellectual life of Paris.
He was the leading exponent of structuralism, a school of thought which was influential for decades."

tonight (thursday), 10.45-11.00pm, on bbc radio 3:
Wagner and Nietzsche
(4th of 5 episodes of "Wagner's Philosophers")

"michael tanner looks at the relationship between two titans of German culture, the 55-year old composer Richard Wagner and the precocious 24-year old philologist, who was destined to become the great philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche. Out of their heady late-night chats about Schopenhauer, Euripedes and Socrates came Nietzsche's first book, The Birth of Tragedy out of the Spirit of Music.
The relationship was to darken and turn sour in later years when Nietzsche accused Wagner of "slobbering at the foot of the cross" in his final opera, Parsifal. But to the end Nietzsche was to regard his encounter with Wagner as one of the most important events of his life."

broadcasting now, on live webcast:
church of scotland general assembly debate on the (revised) "inheritance of abraham" report (here)

the debate is being broadcast on live webcam, here (4 options: ordinary, iphone/ipad, android, and audio)

the resolution to be discussed (later this afternoon) is sections 19 to 28 (as renumbered, see page 52, here) of the "deliverance":

19. Condemn acts of terrorism, violence and intimidation whether committed by individuals, organisations or governments.
20. Reaffirm the historic position of the Church of Scotland that Israel is a country which is recognised within the international community of States, with all the rights and responsibilities attendant on that status.
21. Reaffirm the historic commitment of the Church of Scotland to a State of Palestine with the same rights and responsibilities recognised within the international community of States, with all the rights and responsibilities attendant on that status.
22. Reject racism and religious hatred and condemn anti-Semitism and Islamophobia.
23. Support ongoing commitment to dialogue and conversation, with particular concern to make sure that those who are on the margins and whose voices are rarely heard get the opportunity to be listened to, especially Christians who live in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory.
24.** Instruct the Church and Society Council to publicise resources to encourage wide discussion of the report The Inheritance of Abraham and its concluding principles.
25. Encourage the appropriate committees in Presbyteries to consider the report The Inheritance of Abraham and bring it to the notice of their Presbytery.
26. Urge the UK Government and the European Union to do all that is within their power to ensure that human rights are respected in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
27. Urge the UK Government and the European Union to do all that is within their power to ensure that international law is upheld in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
28. Urge the UK Government and the European Union to use pressure to stop further expansion of Israeli settlements and remove existing illegal settlements in the Occupied West Bank.

** section 24 appears to give the csc (which produced the report) carte blanche to produce further material, and to circulate it without the need for further approval

felix mendelssohn (in the composer of the week series) (presented by donald macleod)

"Felix Mendelssohn had a remarkable, if brief career, cut short at the age of just 38 in 1847.
He was born into an exceptional family. His grandfather Moses was a much respected Jewish philosopher, while his father Abraham, a wealthy Jewish banker and his mother Lea, a cultivated, musical woman had the standing and means to provide their four children with every opportunity Berlin society could offer.
Only a handful of composers can match Mendelssohn's precocious talent. A child prodigy, famously likened by his friend Robert Schumann to Mozart, Felix's public career began at the age of 9. Between the ages of 11 and 15, he wrote 13 strings symphonies, 5 concertos, 4 operas, chamber music, piano and organ pieces, solo songs and choral pieces."
"1. Few composers can have received a warmer welcome in Britain than Felix Mendelssohn. He owes one of his biggest successes, "Elijah" to the warm reception it received from the British public. He arrived for what would be the first of many visits in 1829. After a very rough crossing during which he endured terrible sea-sickness, his first destination was London, where he put up in rented rooms at 103 Great Portland Street, just around the corner from the BBC's Broadcasting House. Armed with a set of visiting cards to which the English "Mr." had been added, he cut an elegant figure in London society, enjoying great success as a conductor, pianist and composer.
Having charmed the English, Mendelssohn travelled to Scotland, where a trip to the Hebridean island of Staffa inspired one of his best loved overtures."
"2. Today, Donald Macleod examines the rich cultural surroundings in which Felix Mendelssohn grew up. Beginning around 1821, the family mounted "Sunday musicales" in their substantial home.
At these concerts, Felix and elder sister Fanny were able to present their latest compositions to the movers and shakers of Berlin society."
"3. Mendelssohn's education was nothing if not thorough. From the age of nine, a long list of tutors arrived at the family home to teach a comprehensive list of subjects ranging from Latin to geography but perhaps the man who was to have the most profound influence over him in his early years was Carl Zelter, the director of Singakademie."
"4. Growing up in the nineteenth century, part of a young man's experience was an extensive period of travel. Having won over the great man of letters, Goethe, a few years earlier, armed with a reputation that ensured a warm welcome wherever he went, in 1829 Mendelssohn left his teenage years well and truly behind him. He spread his wings on a trip that would occupy him for the best part of three years. Wherever he went he collected impressions, among them the material for his so-called "Italian" symphony, which he said was going to be, "the jolliest piece I have ever done"!"
"5. Donald Macleod looks at the rather bumpier ride Mendelssohn's reputation was given in the years after his death, before the reassessment he's enjoying in our own century."

"Born exactly one hundred years ago on June 10th 1915 in Quebec, Bellow spent most of his life in Chicago and it formed the backdrop for many of his novels.
In 1976 he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Herzog depicts the mid life crisis of a Jewish academic whose mind begins to unravel when his wife leaves him for his best friend. His rage drives him to write a series of letters to friends, family and the famous in a bid to understand his predicament. They are never sent but they colour the book's emotional landscape.
Herzog was nominated as one of the 100 best novels in the English language by TIME magazine."

The programme considers the impact of World War One and how its aftermath still overshadows the political landscape of the Middle East.
The Arab Revolt, launched by the Hashemite dynasty during World War One, unified resistance to the Ottomans and triggered the end of their rule of the Arab world. Strong hopes of a unified Arab state were dashed. Instead a patchwork of mandates, protectorates and colonial rule followed with a promise from the British prime minister that Jewish people would be given a "national home in Palestine".

"Following the end of the World War Two, the BBC began a series of special radio appeals on behalf of a group of children who had survived the Holocaust but were now stranded as orphans in post-war Europe. A recording of one of these moving broadcasts still exists in the BBC archives.
Seventy years on, Alex Last set out to find out what had happened to the 12 children named in this recording. They had been in many camps, including Auschwitz, Muhldorf, Kaufering, Theresienstadt, Belsen, and Dachau, and the modern-day search took him to Germany, Israel and the United States.
Five of the Holocaust survivors are still alive today, and four of them were well enough to speak to Alex, who was able to piece together their stories of courage and humanity."

(last week, at 0:27:02) "Of course, this is a deeply controversial topic, with highly charged views on both sides. So, for obvious reasons, we're going to hear from both sides. Next week: the Israeli view. But right now, Louise Hidalgo hears from two Palestinians about their memories of that time."
"Next, as promised last week, we're going to get a second personal view of the Arab-Israeli Six Day War in June 1967. We've already heard a graphic account of the Palestinian experience of the conflict, which pitted the Jewish state against the armed forces of Egypt Jordan and Syria.
So it's only right and proper that we hear now from the other side, and that other side doesn't just mean those living in Israel, there was at the time a Jewish population scattered throughout the Middle East and beyond. Louise Hidalgo has been talking to someone from the Jewish community in Tripoli, who was forced to flee when anti-Jewish riots broke out in Libya."

"The children's author, Judith Kerr, said on our programme on Saturday that the title character of her most famous book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, 'is just a tiger', and doesn't symbolise anything else. She was responding to a suggestion by another famous children's author, Michael Rosen, who said the tiger represented an underlying threat to her family and linked it to her fear that the Gestapo could arrest her father.
The Tiger is not the only fictional animal character whose real meaning has been the source of speculation. It's been suggested that the shark in Jaws, the novel if not the film, is an embodiment of punishment for adultery, while Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is often interpreted as an allegory about repressed homosexuality and drug abuse.
Michael Rosen is a children's novelist and poet, who first suggested that the tiger represented the Gestapo."

children of the gaza war

"Lyse Doucet follows the lives of children on both sides of the conflict in the midst of the war and through the months that followed, revealing how children born so close are growing further apart with each war.
Children in Gaza and across the border in Israel have lived through three major conflicts in six years.
In the summer of 2014, more than 500 children were killed in a 51-day war, all but one of them Palestinian.
Almost every child in Gaza lost a loved one. More than a third were left traumatised.
On the Israeli border, children lived in constant fear of rocket attacks and underground tunnels."

This week, he meets the newly appointed Cabinet Minister Robert Halfon, who could be found sitting by the roadside holding up signs during the General Election campaign.
His spastic displegia makes it too exhausting to canvass door to door and he says his crutches led to a hard fight at the original constituency selection level: "I had to convince people that I wasn't going to keel over on the doorstep!"

house of lords: freedom of religion

"Coverage of the debate in the House of Lords on worldwide violations of Article 18 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, from Thursday 16 July."

includes …
lord alton, 4.20 to 4.35pm
lord palmer, 5.23 to 5.28pm
• rabbi lord sacks, 5.38-5.43pm (1:18:35 to 1:23:00)

Lord Alton of Liverpool (CB): (moving the motion, 0:05:52) "My noble friend’s [Lord Sack's] brilliant critique, Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence, is required reading for anyone trying to comprehend what motivates people to kill Christian students in Kenya, Shia Muslims praying in a mosque in Kuwait, Pakistani Anglicans celebrating the Eucharist in Peshawar or British tourists simply holidaying in Tunisia and for anyone trying to understand the dramatic rise in Christian persecution, the vilification of Islam in some parts of the world and, in Europe, the troubling reawakening of anti-Semitism.
My noble friend’s insights into the shared stories of the Abrahamic faiths—not least the displacement stories of Isaac and Ishmael, Jacob and Esau, Leah and Rachel, and Joseph and his brothers—and how they can be used to promote mutual respect, coexistence, reconciliation and the healing of history underline the urgent need for scholars from those faiths to combat the evil being committed in God’s name and to give emphasis to the ancient texts in a way which upholds the dignity of difference—the title of another of my noble friend’s books."
Lord Palmer of Childs Hill (LD): … As a Jew, I feel strongly about the Holocaust, which touched my own family, who lost a grandmother and an aunt in Poland in the 1940s.
So, I was very moved to hear reports of a rescue operation last week to seek, in a modest way, to take action against the barbaric treatment of Christian sects in the IS heartland of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilisation. This appears to be an operation by the Barnabas Fund, an international relief agency for the persecuted church with the financial co-operation of certain Jewish organisations and philanthropists, to transfer Christian families to safe havens. I understand that this in an ongoing project to evacuate Christians from those lands where they have dwelt for 2,000 years. What these Christian communities are experiencing is not new to the Jewish communities throughout the Middle East and North Africa, whose persecution led to an exodus of some 850,000 Jews from Arab lands.
… It may seem a paradox but the country in the Middle East that is most welcoming to Christians, as the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Carey, mentioned in passing, is Israel. Christianity is one of the recognized religions in Israel and is practised by more than 161,000 Israeli citizens—about 2.1% of the population. In Israel, there are approximately 300 Christians who have chosen to convert from Islam. Very sadly, such apostasy is not allowed in much of the rest of the Middle East.
… one of the heroes of the Holocaust died at the age of 106. I refer of course to Sir Nicolas Winton, who organised eight trains to take 669 children to London from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. The British people made room for these refugees and I can only hope that in Britain and the rest of Europe we will rise to the challenge in the present times.
… Christianity has, I believe, 2 billion adherents, Islam 1.3 billion, and Judaism, which comes slightly further behind, a mere 14 million. …"
Lord Sacks (CB): "…There must be some set of principles that we can appeal to, and be held accountable to, if our common humanity is to survive our religious differences. Religious freedom is about our common humanity, and we must fight for it if we are not to lose it. This, I believe, is the issue of our time."
