Jean Améry, born as Hans Meyer in Vienna in October 1912, was one of the most important European intellectuals of the 1960s and 1970s. A philosopher and author, he dealt vividly with his experience in Nazi Concentration Camps in his collection of essays entitled Beyond Guilt and Atonement, an indispensable work in German literature on the Holocaust. All five essays, including "How much Heimat does one need?",  are still highly relevant today.
