Am 13. November 2015 lösen die Bilder von den Anschlägen in Paris eine Schockwelle aus.

On Nov 13 2015, the attacks of Paris result in a shock wave.

Im Banne dieser Barbarei versteht man die Welt nicht mehr.

Under the spell of this barbaric act, it's hard to grasp the basics of the world.

Für Gila Lustiger, die in Paris ihre Wahlheimat gefunden hat, ist das ein Moment,

um mit dem Nachdenken zu beginnen, um Informationen zu sammeln und zu ordnen.

For Gila Lustiger, this is a moment to begin contemplating, to collect and sort out information.

Sie sucht das Gespräch mit Freunden,begibt sich in Stadtviertel, die zwar mit der Metro zu erreichen sind, in Wahrheit aber von ihrem alltäglichen Leben so weit entfernt sind wie ein fremder Planet.

She aimes at the discourse with friends, goes to districts which can be reached by Metro, but in truth are very far away from her daily life, like a strange planet.

Wer ihr dabei lesend folgt, erhält ein selten klares Bild von gesellschaftlichen Zuständen, in denen der Terror spielend Wurzeln schlagen kann.

The reader receives a seldom(ly) clear picture of social conditions in which terror can easily grow roots.

Gila Lustiger will in "Erschütterung" keine eindeutigen Antworten anbieten,sondern vor allem die richtigen Fragen stellen.

Gila Lustiger will not offer unequivocal answers, rather most of all ask the right questions.

Weder die Rechte noch die Linke kommt dabei ungeschoren davon.

Both the right wing as well as the left won't get off lightly.

Die Stärke der Analyse liegt darin, dass sie mehrere Blickwinkel vereint.

The power of analysis lies in combined effort of several viewpoints.

Was in Frankreich in den letzten Jahren geschieht, stellt sich aus jüdischer Sicht– und das ist den wenigsten bewusst– noch einmal gravierender dar.

What has happened in France within the last few years,weighs heavier once more ... from a Jewish point of view--only very few are aware of it.

Ihre Binnenperspektive, die hierzulande eher unbekannte Facetten der französischen Politik erhellt,
ergänzt Gila Lustiger zudem um Seitenblicke nach Deutschland.
Her inner perspective sheds light on unknown facets of French politics, is complementary with a side - view to Germany.
So kommt sie nicht zuletzt auch immer wieder zu der Frage:
This is why she confronts herself every so often with this question:
Welche Lehre kann man in Deutschland aus der Situation in Frankreich ziehen?
" What can be learned in Germany from the situation in France? "

My German is almost nonexistent but I recognize enough words to realize she's on track - if I had a reason to question her, which I don't

Arthur, do you mean gluten free bagels, Guten Tag and bon appetite ? It looks as if you had Germans around you. Gluten free seems to be important to a lot of people now.There is a lady here in the village who provides the Vesper break with normal bread for the helpers but she has to eat this tasteless bread.( Wine Harvest )

JMac, I have inquired about the Cambridge Proficiency Test and will have it done this spring.That will ease my budget.Thanks Jon and Kosher for commenting. I had responded yesterday but had forgotten to add it here so it got lost. But I did inform Alysa about this. She might know this lady. I've tried to add the link for the book, could only find the German version and noticed that she has published several books. I will try to add the English link later on.

Kosher, your words are very kind. I find it sort of important for Jewish people to leave the German text here, too. You might have noticed that I have shortened the sentences because I wanted to keep the translation as precise as possible. (which is difficult at times)

Gila Lustiger has published several books in French. The book in question might not be available yet except perhaps in German only.
