Feuchtwanger who con-
vinced the public that a
novel, based on an actual
Jewish historical figure,
can be both an artistic and a
financial success. The
author's talent, though de-
eply anchored in time, is
remarkably timeless.
In the fall of 1983,
Feuchtwanger's memorable
novel, The Oppermanns was
republished with tremen-
dous success. It was also
made into a four-hour TV
program which was shown
simultaneously throughout
the world, including East
and West Germany and Is-
rael.
Following Jew Suss, the
publishers will reissue Suc-
cess, his novel of Germany
in the 1920s.
There is now an
enthusiastic revival of
interest in the life and
works of Lion
Feuchtwanger — the man
whom Adolf Hitler called
his "enemy Number One!"
1984 is the 100th anniver-
sary of the birth of this
famous Jewish author.
Yes, Jew Suss is a big
book, in many more ways
than 416 pages — but you'll
enjoy every moment of it.

Suss was tried and con-
demned to be hung. He was
asked, time and again, to
convert to Christianity and
save his life, but he said,
"No. I will die as a Jew. I am
Iffering violence and in-
j ustice. Convert? No." And
he went to the 35-foot iron
gallows crying aloud,
Shema Yisroel — "Hear, 0
Israel, the Lord our God, the
Lord is One."
Suss was forced into a
gigantic bird-cage — a rope
was placed around his neck
and was drawn tight. He
was hoisted high above the
ground and was executed.
Feuchtwanger does not
try to make Suss appear as a
stainless angel, murdered
by devils. In a totally cor-
rupt society in which no-
body objected to acquiring
wealth by dishonest means,
Suss, as the Christian
noblemen around him,
practiced graft just as
everybody else. Hence his
death was nothing but a
"political or judicial" mur-
der.
Feuchtwanger is not the
first author to delve into our
fascinating Jewish past, our
age-long sorrows, our devo-
tion to the Word. But, it was

conquers their province. He
makes no effort to meet with
Jewish leaders, or to offer
them the protection to
which they had become ac-
customed.
In fear of their safety, the
leaders gather in the base-
ment of the synagogue to
discuss what should be
done. The scientist and the
doctor offer to name their
next discovery after the
king, the writer and the ar-
tist to dedicate powerful
new works to him. The mer-
chant suggests a gift of rare
value.
But it is the rabbi who de-
vises the clever plan that
enables the people to
demonstrate their value to
the new monarch.
This little-known histori-
cal episode, chronicled with
warm humor by Mrs.
Greene, comes to life with
Marilyn Hirsh's carefully-
researched and lavishly-
drawn illustrations.

In Mrs. Moskowitz and
the Sabbath Candlesticks,
from the Jewish Publication
Society, Amy Schwartz por-
trays a. grandmother who is
inspired to make a real
home out of what she had
felt was just another tiny
apartment. And as Mrs.
Moskowitz busily creates
her new surroundings,
readers are afforded a
glimpse of how the Sabbath
plays a role in helping this
grandmother make a place
that is well worth living in.
This charming tale be-
gins as Mrs. Moskowitz has
moved from her spacious old
home to a small apartment.
As she walks from room to
room, her mind brimming
with past family memories,
she is filled with sadness.
Taking her cat in her arms,
she asks him, "You call
this a home, Fred?"
Fortunately her son ar-
'ves, bringing her a box she
d left behind. She opens it
o discover her tarnished
silver candlesticks, long
forgotten in her old base-
ment. Then the magic be-
gins.
