Ari Rath presents his new book

Ari Rath, the famous Austrian-Isreali journalist, presented his new book "Ari means Lion" to 60 students in the Ministry of Culture yesterday (Wed). In this book Mr Rath, whose motto is to "never forget", tells about his touching life.

"It is a problem that many people want to forget the past", Mr Rath said at the presentation. He has been fighting against the fact that crimes of the NS regime are gradually forgotten.

Those who read his book can "learn how you feel when you become outlawed over night", when you are transformed from "a human being to a subhuman being over night".

Mr Rath was born in Vienna in 1925. Him and his brother had to flee from the Nazis to Palestine when he was 13 years old. He lived in a kibbuz (an agricultural community) for years.

After he had graduated he became a journalist. Ari Rath worked at the "Jerusalem Post" for 31 years. He fought for a liberal Israel and the reconciliation with Palestine, when he was the publisher and chief-editor of the newspaper.

Mr Rath has recently spoken about Vienna, Israel and his dream in a conversation with Bernd Matschedolnig on Radio Vienna.
