The Commanding Voice
of Auschwitz
what does the voice of Auschwitz command?
Jews are forbidden to hand Hitler posthumous victories. They
are commanded to survive as Jews, but the Jewish people
perish. They are commanded to remember the victims of
Auschwitz, let their memory perish. They are forbidden to
despair of man and his world, and to escape into either cyni-
cism or other worldliness, but they co-operate in delivering
the world over to the forces of Auschwitz. Finally, they are
forbidden to despair of the God of Israel, let Judaism perish
A secularist Jew cannot make himself believe by a mere act
of will, nor can he be commanded to do so. . . . And a
religious Jew who has stayed with his god may be forced into
new, possibly revolutionary relationships with Him. One
possibility, however, is wholly unthinkable. A Jew may not
respond to Hitler's attempt to destroy Judaism by himself
co-operating in its destruction In ancient times the unthink-
able Jewish sin was idolatry. Today, it is to respond to
Hitler by doing his work.
