Description

The British are the Jews; The cord from which all life stems. They are the sparks of energy that fuel history. They generate time, And lead us toward one inevitable truth; They are The Lord's Chosen People. Wherever they have traveled they have left cultural treasures; Homo sapiens steal them, And manage to convince themselves they are responsible for their creation Due to being self-deluding creatures by nature, And therein lies the secret to understanding the rise and fall of all civilizations; Nothing would be possible without the British.show more

About Nigel Shindler

Max Shindler Born; August 7, 1931, Liverpool Died; July 29, 2014, Toronto He lived in Waterloo, Liverpool, until he was evacuated to Wales during the Second World War; it was here he first encountered open anti-Semitism; for example, on many occasions he was given no other choice but to eat his meals in the outhouse on the farm where he lived; such traumatizing incidents left lifelong scars on his psyche. He was never able to disregard the humiliation he felt due to this abuse, or forget the fact that many of his relatives were executed in concentration camps, or died in boxcars before arriving to them. He left his family home when he was seventeen to live in Israel, where he became a member of the Israeli Army. He later joined England's Royal Air Force, and was a member of a bomb disposal unit. He worked for Avon's advertising department in Northampton, and worked for many years with his wife in visual merchandising. He married Pearl Lomax in 1957 in Castletown, on the Isle of Man. A year later their daughter, Nicola, was born; three years later Simone was born; Nigel, his youngest child, was born in 1964; he was loyal, generous, and nurturing, toward each of his children, and grandchildren. He had an immense appreciation for the arts; he wrote, designed illustrations, and formed Trinity Manifesto Productions with his son. Max played the classical guitar; did photography, and became fluent in several languages, including German, Hebrew and Yiddish. He loved opera, and classical music. He had a passion for learning, and read voraciously throughout his life. Nigel Shindler The author was given the name, Nigel, at birth, a very common name in Britain, and seven days later conforming to Jewish custom, a circumcision ceremony was performed and he was given both the Hebrew name Tovia and the Yiddish equivalent Tevia, both names imply the blessings and goodness that God bestows. In later years whilst living in Israel he adopted the Hebrew name Eitan, which implies stoicism and impetuousness. All these terms, expressions, are a reflection of his nature. He has depth and complexity, but can display banality, depending on his mood, or the time of day.show more
