landmark for the Rothschilds.
As Guy defines them:

My father inherited from
his ancestors a deep devotion
' to Judaism. In addition to the
Sabbath (I've already men-
tioned the fact that he never
went shooting or raced one of
his horses on a Saturday), he
observed the principal
Jewish holidays, more out of
respect for tradition than
from religious zeal. He never
failed to attend the services
of Rosh Hashana, Yom Kip-
pur, Passover ... and in my
youth, on the eve of Yom
Kippur, after the dinner pre-
ceeding the fast, he'd always
make me walk to the
synagogue on the rue de la
Victoire with him, wearing a
tailcoat, white tie, and a silk
top hat, to the astonishment
of passers-by.
When I was thirteen, we
naturally celebrated my Bar
Mitzvah, the equivalent of a
First Communion. It was an
elaborate ceremony (during
which, I regret to say, I sang
my part in the ritual terribly
off-key).
I well remember the Seder
dinner, the evening before
Passover (a feast com-
memorating the Hebrews'
exodus from Egypt in 1500
B.C.), when the entire family
used to gather together.
Along with the emotion I felt
when I was called upon to
recite the Manish Tana, I
could vaguely sense the hid-
den symbolism of the various
rituals that accompany the •
ceremony:
Traditionally, several sym-
bolic objects are placed in
the center of the table, in
front of the head of the fam-
ily: a lamb bone, in memory
of the lamb the Hebrews sac-
rificed on the eve of the
death of the first-born Egyp-
tian sons; three matzoth (un-
leavened bread), • com-
memorating the Hebrews'
hasty flight from Egypt when
they were driven into exile by
the Pharoah; bitter herbs,
such as horseradish, recalling
the severity of their slavery
in Egypt; a paste made of
mashed dates and figs, evok-
ing the mortar the Hebrews
had to mix in order to build
the pyramids; and an egg,
which, having neither a be-
ginning nor an end, is infi-
nite, thus symbolizing eter-
nity and the hope of eternal
recommencement.
Seder was an 1 occasion for
all of us to be together In a
gay and cheerful mood. We'd
slug in chorus o joyAd bymu

pal Jewish organization in
France, the Consistoire Cen-
tral; and as soon as the Nazi
persecutions started in Ger-
many, he devoted much of his
energy to aiding Jewish refu-.
gees.
The most important rule in
my parents' minds, of which I
was reminded at every
opportunity, was the one
against marrying a woman
who was not Jeivish, or not
willing to be converted to the
Jewish faith. Although I
strayed from these teachings
later on in life, they had,
nevertheless, been constantly
repeated to me during my
youth.
The outbreak of anti-
• Semitism in France before
the war, stimulated by the
example of the Germans and
intensified by hatred for the
Popular Front, confirmed my
sense of responsibility
toward my fellow Jews in the
tradition of my family. The
painful experience of Vichy
and of the Statute on Jews
further reinforced my sense
of solidarity, as did the
gradual revelation of the
martyrdom in the Nazi
camps.
I returned to the synagogue
of the rue de la .Victoire in
1944, a few weeks after the
Liberation of Paris, on the
occasion of Yom Kippur. It
was the first time I'd been
there in four years. Few
people were there. Those
present had barely emerged
from hiding, and many places,
were empty. I couldn't help
recalling the faces of those
who should have been among
us and who would never re-
turn. The living, shadowlike,
next to phantoms of the dead
.. I was overwhelmed with
emotion. There was some-
thing strangely unreal about
it, something terrible, almost
unbearable. A poignant evo-
cation of "the horror of hor-
ror."

,

A review of so impressive a
volume about such an important
family must be accompanied by
an apology that much more has
been eliminated from comment.
In its totality, The Wings of For-
tune has a universal appeal. The
family story enriches the record
of the Rothschilds. Guy de
Rothschild's is among the most
significant volumes relating to
contemporary history.
