The cry of a ember torn from the flames


After the war, before reaching Satu Mare and then Sighet, looking for his brothers in the faith who “wandered like lost souls in the desert”, he preached on a hill in Cluj where, years ago, Jews were gathered for deportation:

“(…) Where were you, priests, Christian believers, you who are here today, where were you when men, women, children, old people, all made in the image of the Creator, were torn from their homes Have you ever dared to sing the psalms of David, his king, in your churches? Israel, and utter the Hebrew word , a word created by the Jews and thus uttered with such piety! We, the Jews, have transmitted it to you through the Bible, what hypocrisy! so easy do not look indifferently when another man’s blood flows and do not kill. The assassinations were prepared in broad daylight by the assassins, you know that, and your own silence was complicit! ”

This cry of grief is enclosed between the covers of Saffron’s memoirs – “Un tison arraché aux flames” (An embers torn from the flames), Stock Edition, Paris 1989.
