“I still have one more thing to tell you—and it will be the last.”
So wrote Albert Camus in his fourth and final letter to his German friend at the end of WWII and the German occupation of parts of France, including Paris, where Camus spent much of the war as an editor and writer in the covert French Resistance against the Nazi occupation. The letter is dated July 1944.
I am telling you this because I found in Camus’ letters to his German friend my inspiration to write my letters to you, my vaccinated friend. In his final letter, Camus bid his friend farewell, so great and permanent became the schism that had divided the two of them during the four years of war.
