A fascinating article has recently been published about the scholar and writer Elżbieta Ettinger (1925- 2005). Ettinger was the editor and translator of Comrade and Lover: Rosa Luxemburg’s Letters to Leo Jogiches (1979) and author of Rosa Luxemburg; A Life (1987). Born in Poland, she survived the Warsaw Ghetto and emigrated to the U.S.A. in 1967, where she became a Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She also wrote two novels and a work on the complex relationship between German-Jewish thinker Hannah Arendt and Nazi intellectual Martin Heidegger.

The article, Frances Brent, ‘Arendt’s Affair; The woman with the sharpest insight into the philosopher’s love for Heidegger had a parallel history’ Tablet, 30 May 2013, is available online here: http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-arts-and-culture/books/133293/arendts-affair
