L'accueil critique de «Bagatelles pour un massacre» by André Derval (4 star ratings)
Geschichte einer Freundschaft Frankfurt a. The book caused quite a stir. When we look back at later events through an ideological lens, it is difficult to bridge the intervening years and fully appreciate what those people knew and what they thought possible. The full heat of passion, and defeat, is still felt in presenting Benjamin as what he was not. Or not sufficiently. These things are common knowledge, but here I would like to focus on one specific issue: to present some comments made by Scho- lem that have appeared in Hebrew translation, but not in the original German, nor, to my knowledge, in any language understood by the majority of scholars of Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht.
Roland A. I tried to show him how friv- olous such a recourse to an irresponsible phrase was. Benjamin said his own experience had convinced him that latent anti-Semitism was very widespread even among the left- ist intelligentsia and that only very few non-Jews — he named Fritz Lieb and Adrienne Monnier — were, so to speak, constitutionally free from it.

He cited a few examples that I am ashamed to repeat, although they are engraved indelibly in my memory. Zohn in G. Scholem, Walter Benjamin. In a comment dated May 1st ,3 kept along with the rest of the Scholem Archive in the National Library of Israel in Jerusalem, Scholem gives a record of his conversation with Walter Benjamin in which, as we shall see, he is less reticent. Nevertheless, to understand why Scholem decided to put in writing and in German his memo- ries years later, those memories he had once refused to publish through decency or decorum, it is necessary to examine the circum- stances that surround their origin.
With this important document it was possible to understand what Brecht thought of Benjamin and his work. If I am not mistaken, the two men had first met in Frankfurt on June 30th when Scholem had given his ce- lebrated talk Walter Benjamin und sein Engel. It can also be deduced from the letters that they met again in the summer of in Zu- rich. In this role, Johnson invited Scholem to give a speech to the Akade- mie in spring , but although Scholem was in Germany in the March of that year, he was not able to go to Berlin. The exception is Brecht who for years held Benjamin spellbound and fascinated.
Brecht, indeed, was the only author in whom he was able to observe the creative processes of a great poet at close quarters. Although Brecht did not provide the first impulse, it was undoubtedly his influence which made Benjamin attempt in earnest to absorb his- torical materialism into his thinking and his work or even to fit all his thinking and work into the frame of historical materialism. Brecht, the tougher of the two, left a pro- found imprint on the more sensitive nature of Benjamin, who had nothing of the ath- lete in him.

Here, as elsewhere unless otherwise stated, the English translation is that of the present translator. Bertolt Brecht, Arbeitsjournal, edited by Werner Hecht, 3 vol. Frankfurt a. A new edition with different impagination and various corrections and additions was published the following year. As the more widely-used paperback edition is based upon the latter, page references of the more recent version will be added next to those of the version used by Scholem to make it easier for the reader to refer to the source.
Er wusste, wovon er redete. Ich muss die Sache irgendwo einmal zur Sprache bringen.

However, I do not agree for reasons that will become apparent later. In a letter dated January 28th , Morgenstern refers to a discussion with Brecht, with Benjamin present, about Trotsky, Zinoviev and Stalin. If only I had had them when I wrote my essay on Benjamin and in particular in the part about his relationship with Brecht! Certainly, as declarations of someone directly involved, what he says is of the greatest value.
It is not surprising that at the time Benjamin wrote to me saying that there were aspects of his work that Brecht could not stomach and so was forced to keep quiet about them when he was with Brecht. He knew what he was talking about. Sooner or later I will have to take a public stance on this.
Scholem, recto. Scholem, verso. So much for Brecht, though not much about Benjamin. It is a pity that I did not know about this and make use of these comments by Brecht for the lec- ture that I gave on Benjamin in New York. Shedletzky once again exercises extreme caution about this; on p.
