Si dès la guerre terminée, des responsables politiques pensaient déjà à la réconciliation de l’Europe déchirée, Frank Buchman, avait lui aussi senti l’urgence de réintégrer l’Allemagne dans la famille des nations.

Cover of \'Skills of Discernment\' by Charis Waddy

Charis Waddy was one of the liveliest minds in the early history of IofC. By 1935 she had an Oxford degree in Arabic and Hebrew, and a PhD from the University of London. At the age of 25 she laid aside her status and career to work full-time with Frank Buchman, helping to architect the thought and action of a developing outreach. In the early 1960’s came the call to take up her Middle East scholarship again. For the next 30 years she researched, travelled, corresponded, lectured and published, and cultivated hundreds of friendships in the Muslim world and beyond. When she died in August 2004, she was described by Dr Zaki Badawi, Director of The Muslim College in London, as a towering contributor to the interfaith movement.

Grigory Solomonovich Pomerants was born 13 March 1918 into a secular Jewish family in the city of Wilno (now Vilnius). In 1925 his family moved to Moscow. There he completed school and graduated in Russian language and literature from the Institute of Philosophy, Literature and History (MIFLI). In 1939 his thesis on Dostoyevsky was judged anti-Marxist. As a result he was not admitted to post-graduate studies after graduation in 1940. After Hitler invaded the USSR in 1941 he fought as a Red Army infantryman, was twice wounded and twice decorated.
