Jung and the Foundation of the Works of C. G. Jung was always supportive of this publication. Ulrich Hoerni and his successor as head of the foundation, Dr. Thomas Fischer, not only granted me access to the relevant material in the Jung archive at the ETH Zurich and the library in Küsnacht, but also helped me through their knowledge and expertise in matters Jung. The same is true for Andreas Jung, whose warm welcome to Küsnacht was very much appreciated. My special thanks also go to the heirs of Erich Neumann, his daughter Rali Loewenthal-Neumann and his son Professor Micha Neumann.

I had already written a letter of clarification to Kirsch before I knew of the existence of this article. He seems to be stuffed full of all sorts of rumours of lies. 47 He also mentions Neumann’s contribution, which he had not read at this stage. In the issue of 3 August 1934 of the Jüdische Rundschau the editor summarizes the arguments of Kirsch and Jung and declares an end to the debate with the publication of Adler’s text. 48 He differentiates between the “form of culture” (“Kulturform”) and “culture” (“Kultur”) itself, stating that Jung had never denied the existence of the latter.

74 As Jung mentioned, Neumann’s participation at Eranos in 1948 was overshadowed by the war in Israel. In response to the UN plan of a two state solution, the country had plunged into a war between the Jewish and the Arab communities of Palestine. The British, who were still holding the mandate until 14 May 1948, hardly intervened, which Neumann described in a letter to Jung as the “betrayal of the English” (62 N, 24 January 1948). When the state of Israel was declared with effect from 15 May 1948, troops from neighboring Arab countries attacked Israel and the internal conflict became a war between states.
