Last post. Errata

I said that the distinguished German actress Hanna Schygulla plays Arendt when I should have written the distinguished German actress Barbara Sukowa

Thanks to Nedim Nomer for pointing this out.

Also when I wrote that Arendt is shown as feeling distant from Jewish women with more distinctly Hebrew names, I perhaps should have made it clear that Hannah is a Hebrew name in origin, though one that was used by 16th century Puritans and and that stands out less as a Jewish name than some other names of Hebrew origin.
