Description: From his escape with the famous rescue of the Danish Jews during the Holocaust and throughout fifty years as a Middle East correspondent for Scandinavian newspapers, Richard Oestermann has found himself at the crux of the great historical moments of our time. Unlike the flashy journalism of today, Oestermannís reporting is in person, on location and dedicated to the objective truth. Complete with exclusive interviews with prominent figures such as Truman, Ben Gurion, Agnon and Boutros-Ghali, Me and the Middle East gives us front-row tickets to the events that shaped the region for years to come, and a glimpse into the unique personalities behind them.
Richard Oestermann has followed all of Israelís modern existence at close range. Despite his Zionist heritage, he is always aware that 'there are two sides to every coin.' This makes the book very much worth reading. Bent Melchior, Chief Rabbi (Emer.)
In Me and the Middle East, the author shares his experiences and adventures in a region where life never stands still, and each moment seems to fill an eternity. It is full of 'hutzpah' Ė the special Israeli cheerfulness bordering on audacity. And then it is Danish, through and through. Bodil F. Skjøtt,Secretary General The Israel Mission
Richard Oestermann has chosen to describe the events in brief, clear chapters which make his book an easy and pleasant experience. Per Stig Moeller, Member of Parliament and former Danish Foreign Minister
