Sample Book Insights:
#1 The need to give Palestine to the Jews is almost tangible. If the Jews won’t disembark here, they will have no future. The Jewish people desperately need a new place, a new beginning, and a new mode of existence.
#2 My great-grandfather, Herbert Bentwich, was a leading figure in the Anglo-Jewish community. He was married to a beautiful, artistic wife who was raising nine children in their magisterial Avenue Road home. He was a self-made man who loved travel, poetry, and theater.
#3 The second answer is that Herbert Bentwich was way ahead of his time. He was committed to ending Jewish misery in the East, but his main reason for taking this journey was to escape the futility of Jewish life in the West. He saw the calamity that would follow the Holocaust.
#4 The British Isles were a temporary respite for the Bentwich delegation, but not for the Anglo-Jewish community. The demography of the British Isles tells a clear story: In the second half of the twentieth century, which Herbert Bentwich will not live to see, the Anglo-Jewish community will shrink by a third.
