ESSAY | NON-FICTION

Two of politics’ infants terribles share their journey and hopes with an intellectual honesty that illuminates the past fifty years. 

How did these two atypical actors of public life, separated for a long time by the Iron Curtain, experience the post-war period, their Jewish roots, communism, the colonial wars, May 1968, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the war in Iraq, the European crisis and the recent Ukrainian events?

For the first time ever, Bernard Kouchner and Adam Michnik dare to tell each other everything, defend their respective positions and also – such a rare thing in politics – admit their mistakes. A dialogue without borders between two friends whose struggles have continued to coincide. Memories Exchanged vibrates with that same ideal: the spirit of resistance and the freedom of men.
