In Tablet Magazine, Martin/Hannah writer's mirrored affair.
The little book that [Elżbieta] Ettinger published was structured around the correspondence between Heidegger and Arendt, which she had originally intended to use as a portion of a larger biography. That’s how she explained the project to the Hannah Arendt Literary Trust when she obtained permission to quote from Arendt’s letters. . . .
Ettinger wanted to present the story of this complicated relationship because she felt it “provided a key to understanding their lives.” . . . But the letters also called to mind her own love affair with Manfred Lachs, the man who was, as she put it, “the father of my daughter.” Ettinger had met Lachs after the war when she was a university student and he was a married professor.
