A striking piece of contemporary history

David Ben Gurion and Konrad Adenauer stand as stalwarts of 20th-century politics, their legacies linked through German and Israeli history, revealing striking parallels. Despite ascending to the pinnacle of political power relatively late in life, both emerge as architects of a new statehood for their respective nations, carrying out pioneering work both domestically and on the diplomatic stage. Their bond deepens into friendship although they only met face-to-face on two occasions.

Michael Borchard recounts the intertwined lives of Ben Gurion and Adenauer in parallel, illuminating their seemingly impossible friendship and prompting reflection on the contemporary lessons that can be derived from these two towering figures.

With a foreword by grandsons Yariv Ben-Elieser and Konrad Adenauer.
