  • Epigenetics and some turning in graves | Letters

    27 Aug 2015 | 11:37 am
    The exchange of views on epigenetics (Letters, passim) must be causing some turning in graves: Lamarck hearing that maybe he was on the right track, Darwin thinking that maybe he was too exclusive and Trofim Lysenko with maybe a wry smile. Lysenko, by using Lamarckian ideas, destroyed Soviet genetics research between 1937-64. Stalin praised him and Khrushchev supported him, but Andrei Sakharov, with Zhores Medvedev, finally had him removed. The communist party aim at the time was to create the “New Soviet Man”. Lysenko’s philosophy involving the use of environmental influences on…

    In the wake of their drubbing at Trent Bridge which resulted in them losing the Ashes to England, the whole Australian cricketing setup seems to be collapsing in a heap.  When a team is winning, the niggles between team members, conflicts between the players and support staff, and more serious structural issues tend to get ignored, but when a team is losing – particularly when they are losing in spectacular fashion – all of these come to the fore.  Nobody demonstrated this better than England after their losing 5-0 in Australia in 2013/14: that series cost us not only the Ashes,…

    It took Australia less than two hours to throw the Ashes away on the morning of the fourth test at Trent Bridge, with Jimmy Anderson’s absence being a complete irrelevance in the wake of Stuart Broad’s incredible 8/15 and a series of shots played by Australian batsmen that varied from appalling to diabolical.  I wasn’t able to watch it but followed it on CricInfo, and hence witnessed the capitulation in text form.  When I watched the highlights when I got home, I saw how bad it was. The balls that the Australians should have left got edged to slip, and the ones they left…

    Without knowing the state of the pitch at Edgbaston, my heart sank when Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to bat.  Australia have one method and one method only of winning: bat first, put on a decent total, and let their bowlers do the rest.  What I didn’t know, but what the English team apparently did, is that batting first on that wicket was a poor decision.  Whether Clarke made a genuine error or has shown himself to lack imagination is only one of the questions being asked of him right now. I watched the first session’s play in the Aussie Bar in Patong’s Bangla…

    8 Aug 2015 | 10:56 am
    In 2013 a new museum opened in Warsaw. We visited it today. It is a public/private partnership between the Polish, German and Norwegian governments and many corporate and individual donors. It is in a magnificent building standing in what was once the Warsaw Ghetto. It is understated on the outside but has a spectacular interior. The design of the entrance hall suggests, with its curved walls, the Bible story of Moses parting the Red Sea. There are few artefacts inside, perhaps because few survive. Each one is embellished, illustrated and put in context by multimedia presentations that invite…

    One of the Jewish members of our group evoked an embarrassed laugh this morning as we walked into the Jewish cemetery in Kielce.  "Another perfect day; let's go visit some dead Jews", he said. It was dark humour to relieve the tension of an emotional week. At times, this tour has seemed like a very long funeral. We have respectfully shuffled, solemn-faced, through cemeteries. We have filed past memorials to horrors so implausible that one can almost understand those who deny them. We have tried to take pleasure in loving restoration work to buildings that now only symbolise the millions of…

    After all the death and despair we have reviewed this week it was good to be regular tourists this morning. We visited the Wawel, seat of Polish kings. We toured the Royal Cathedral, of which John Paul II was formerly the bishop. We enjoyed the largest and, in my opinion the most magnificent, market square in Europe. I had seen it all before, having brought my family for weekend trips when we lived in Poland. I was delighted to see it all in far better condition than in those days. Poland's evident prosperity pleases me a lot. I spent 11 years of my life working, with my clients, on its…

    Auschwitz is the German name for Oświęcim in Poland. To the majority of its inhabitants before the Second World War, it was known by its Yiddish name, Oshpitzin. Because of the notorious concentration camp, Oświęcim's main industry is now - as the unpleasant jargon has it - "necrotourism". The number of visitors on an unpleasantly hot Summer day was astonishing. The parking and other facilities (though improved since I first visited in the 1990s) are barely adequate. One of our group commented that it was too "touristic" for his taste, but what are the locals to do? More than a million…

The Polish state has handed back such sites in the 1,200 places where there were Jewish communities in Poland before the Holocaust. There are now 10 places where Jews live in Poland. They number, not the pre-war millions, but only 5,000 souls. These few people now have the responsibility of maintaining the sites.    There has been no restitution of the private property of the millions murdered by the Nazis nor even of the few survivors or their…
