Tony Judt: born at the right time

One thought on “Tony Judt: born at the right time”

  1. I, too, born in 1943, remember the loveliness of Switzerland, though not through the Josef K-like carapace of MDD. I went there mostly to climb in the high Alps and well recall the opulence and comfortable ‘satisfaction’ of the people and the transition from the bad roads and grey grimness of post-war France. I still go to Switzerland most years and love the beauty of the country and the mountains.

    Equally, I can never forget reading, “The Swiss, The Gold & The Dead” by Jean Ziegler, himself Swiss, which puts my appreciation into perspective.
