Ezra Heymann Venezuela 2010
He was born in Czernowitz, Romania, in 1928. Despite the entry of various armies into the city - Romanian, Soviet, German - his family was able to remain there until April 1945, when they moved to Bucharest. Faced with the threats of communism, as a philosophy student, he fled to Vienna and a year later to Heidelberg, where he completed his studies under the tutelage of Hans-Georg Gadamer, one of the great figures of twentieth-century philosophy. He joined his parents and brother in Montevideo, Uruguay, and stayed there until the military dictatorship pushed him to Venezuelan lands in 1974 where he developed a solid and admired career as a researcher and undergraduate and graduate teacher, having published important works and participated in national and international events.
Testimony: "You have to be very dedicated, but no one should believe that he did things alone: human solidarity is something very great. Above all, our parents had this understanding that no one, no fairy promised us a bed of roses at birth. You have to make an effort and at the same time know how to appreciate and be grateful for what you have received".
