Julius Rubin, 1/22/98: I have read Christopher Zimmerman's review of Elizabeth Bohlken-Zumpe's Torches Extinguished [KIT X #1]. The reviewer questions Bette's documentation, her memory of events, and her personal motivation in writing these memoirs that reflect on Bruderhof history. I wonder if Zimmerman is aware that Yaacov Oved published The Witness of the Brothers, A History of the Bruderhof (Transaction, 1996).

[KIT X #1]. The reviewer questions Bette'sdocumentation, her memory of events, and her personal motivation in writing thesememoirs that reflect on Bruderhof history. I wonder if Zimmerman is aware thatYaacov Oved published
The Witness of the Brothers, A History of the Bruderhof 
(Transaction, 1996). Oved is an Israeli academic, a student of the kibbutz movementand communal groups. By his own account, he spent nearly a decade visiting theBruderhof, interviewing key members, and reading Bruderhof records and archives.His book was written with Bruderhof cooperation and encouragement. In the chapter on Primavera, Oved makes extensive use of Bette's work, in addition to Allain's TheCommunity That Failed and Merrill Mow's Torches Rekindled. It appears that Oved,after reviewing Bruderhof archives and interview transcripts with current and former leaders and Mow's writings, found Bette's writings well-documented, authoritative,and compelling.
