A reading by PAUL SCOFIELD of The Martyrs and the Revenge (from The Legend of Baal-Shem) and an excerpt from
Genuine Dialogue and the Possibilities of Peace (from Pointing the Way)
Introduced by Roy WALKER
Martin Buber died in Jerusalem a week after Pentecost this year. This story of The Martyrs and the Revenge represents his Jewish spirit, which was closely linked with that of the Baal-Shem; and it offers strange parallels with events in Buber s own long life.
