Susan M. Deutsch, G’25, writes she’s looking forward to coming to campus for her class’s 60th Reunion. She is helping to establish a Brandeis alumni club in Maine, which has already hosted several successful Zoom events. A book by Burton Kaufman, P’99, “Barack Obama: Conservative, Pragmatist, Progressive,” will be published by Cornell University Press in March. Madeline (Geltman) Levine, who retired from teaching in 2010, works as a literary translator from Polish to English. She recently translated two books on the Holocaust: Tadeusz Borowski’s “Here in Our Auschwitz and Other Stories” (Yale University Press, 2021) and Lukasz Krzyzanowski’s “Ghost Citizens: Jewish Return to a Postwar City” (Harvard University Press, 2020). Martin Quitt hearkens back to a free-expression controversy that unfolded on the Brandeis campus 60 years ago, when a classmate was suspended for performing a role in a mock crucifixion. “Founded by American Jews in the aftermath of the Holocaust, Brandeis was sensitive to the charge of being anti-Christian despite being nondenominational,” Martin remembers.
