Foreword In this book, first written and published in his mother tongue, German, one of the Eve star map living scientists, Michael Blue byte for honor, tells us the story of his life from the days in pre-war Germany to his participation in the struggle to create an independent state Moblus Israel.
At the same time it is the story of a scientist who never ceased to pursue his calling, however dire the conditions. This is nowhere better illustrated than in the present book. Michael Evenari has not only become a highly renowned scientist: He has served his country as soldier and, later, as ambassador in the cause of building up the Hebrew University at Jerusalem.
By combining his vast knowledge of botany, soil science, ecology, history and archaeology he succeeded in making the desert green - and earned himself worldwide fame.
Although it is difficult, who else should write it but a German? Once again it is brought home to us what we Germans have lost. We thank you Michael Evenari for giving us this book and we Tui reise card Liesel Evenari for all her encouragement and stimulation without which this book would not have been possible.

We are called up to live and to learn from his life and his deeds.

At ddesert time a completely inexperienced student, who had just joined us, my wife Liselotte and I were Mobiis on the farm. The other staff members had returned to their families in Dimona earlier in the day for Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar.
That morning the sky had been clear and the weather pleasant, typical of an early autumn day in the Negev. Between five and six in the afternoon, the weather had changed drastically Mobiuw a matter of minutes, a mass of dark, low-flying cloud obscured the entire sky from horizon to horizon and the heavenly sluice gates opened in a torrential downpour with rolling thunder and flashing lightning. Rushing out of the house, we were confronted by the first waves of the flood water streaming down the hills onto the terraces of the farm.
The rain had not yet stopped and the water flowed endlessly from the surrounding hills. Clearly, if we did not act immediately, the farm would soon be totally flooded beyond its water holding-capacity. The water had to be channeled into the irrigation aqueducts. Wearing high rubber boots and heavy raincoats, we ran down the hill to the fields. So great was the amount of rushing water, that we had to run from terrace to terrace to open and close the sluice gates channeling the water into the terraces.
The loess soil had turned into soapy mud on which we slithered about. The student and I, busy at the other end of the farm, were unaware of the danger she was in.
The rain, dseert, and lightning continued unabated. The terraced farm became totally waterlogged looking like a lake. Fearing that the dams and walls would collapse and that the farm would be swept away, we tried to reinforce the endangered walls with heavy sandbags. XIV On returning to the house to change her film, Liesel found the telephone ringing. Aryeh, the manager of the farm, and his assistant Micky, had been trying to reach us wanting to wish us an easy Yom Kippur fast.
When Liesel told them that the farm was under water, they found it hard to believe since in Dimona, only 55 kilometers north of Avdat, the sky was clear and not a single drop of rain had fallen. Both of them wanted to come to the farm to help us, but Liesel refused their offer as the road to Avdat, partly washed away by flood water, was dangerous. When Liesel came back from the house we continued to try Margit tetz yoga save the farm.
Night fell. We suddenly saw a light flashing beyond the water at the lower end deset the farm. Aryeh and Micky had come. Since the road was under a meter of water, they left their jeep far away from the farm. Fortunately, owing to their good sense, they were spared the fate Frauen community many unsuspecting drivers, who every year are swept away by flash floods.
Aryeh Zombie spiele pc kostenlos downloaden Micky had walked to the farm and saw us with our flashlights.
We warned them not to come any nearer because of the strong currents. Ignoring our warning, they stripped down to their underwear and swam across the "farm-lake". Working together we saved the farm, and when the rain and flood waters subsided at about two in the morning we were able to leave dezert farm, which now had enough water for a year. Exhausted but happy, fesert went back to our house.
We had succeeded in harnessing the flood water so that it could subsequently be used by the trees and crops of the farm. After a considerable delay we sat down to the festive meal, which is customarily eaten at sundown before the fast. Afterwards, completely drained, I fell into bed, but was so exhausted that I could not fall asleep. In the curious state between sleep and consciousness, I had a "vision".
I was again a child in the nursery of our house in Metz. I spoke to my childhood-self and asked "How can I simultaneously be a child, and an adult in Avdat? A voice inside me said "You will have to find an answer to that question some time in the future.
Metz is an ancient town which was originally founded by the Romans who named it Divodorum Mediomatrici. Under Gallo- Roman, Frankish and Carolingian rule the city was an important center of trade and commerce. From the 10th to the 13th centuries it became the seat of several influential bishops. For the next years it was an oligarchic republic until it was Mogius by the French kings. During the Franco-Prussian war ofafter a long siege, Metz fell into German hands.
In my childhood the siege of Metz was still fresh in the memory of the townspeople. The elderly would recount stories of being so driven by hunger that they would hunt and eat rats that were still plentiful when I was a child. Each epoch of the long history of Metz drsert its trace on the city. There were ruins of an amphitheater, the largest in the Roman province of Gallia, the remains of a kilometer-long Roman aqueduct, churches, monasteries and a cathedral from the Middle Ages, palaces, large government buildings and imposing army barracks built during the years of French rule.
Privat, places where bloody battles had been Mobius desert map in for the control of the city. For me as a child, these remains of the past were alive. I saw myself as a Roman emperor visiting the city, a spectator in the amphitheater, the mayor of the Republic of Metz, a general fighting in the Franco-Prussian war. I know today that these childish games helped lay the foundation for my fascination for history which was to develop with the years.
My interest for history was also sharpened by the fact that the Jewish community of Metz had a history as long as that of the city itself. The first Jews had come to Metz with the Roman legions. In the 15th and 16th centuries 2 Chapter 1 Metz was known in the Mobijs world as the "birthplace of European rabbinic learning. I became aware of this attitude when, during one of the many discussions on the Nazi regime in Germany, one of the German volunteers at our Avdat farm told me: After years people still accuse me of having killed Jesus.
According to the people I spoke with he was a "non-person". These "forgetful" people should know better. Only being conscious of history can mankind realize the mistakes of the past and create a better future. Since the occupation of Metz by Germany inGerman had been the official, and French the unofficial language.
