Praise for Sartre

To The Editor:

I have just read the first article in the series by Sartre which you are currently publishing in COMMENTARY. I find it the most lucid and understanding treatment of the subject by a non-Jew which I have ever read. I intend to use these articles in one of my discussion classes . . .

To The Editor:

. . . Nothing in the flood of writing . . . on the subject of so-called group understanding equals in keen analysis and subtle comprehension Sartre’s “The Situation of the Jew.” Perhaps Carey McWilliams’ writings might be put in the same category as Sartre’s. All the rest, the sincere, the shallow, the “clever,” and the mediocre, at best make only a stab at this complex problem, more often revealing their own ignorance than adding to knowledge and understanding in any measurable degree. I wish that I had the talent to convey how deeply this article in your April issue has impressed a number of us here in Detroit.
