From the jacket of the Erasmo edition, 2009.

“...But I was hungry and thirsty for miracles, and still I am. Who can deny that?: the world is all seething with miracles; the trouble is that too often we do not.
To perceive the miracle, to feel its true value, you need to breath a certain air: I mean that, in a certain dimension of time, the miracle is more easily be perceived. And the miracles I aspire to may very well be not nature’s prodigies: it does not interest me so much that a hunchback man gets his hunch disappeared, but rather that in me, all of a sudden, a state of being is replaced by another state of being, more saintly. That it is like a window that we open, because, since it is suffocating, we want fresh air; like a pitiful cry when, in the empty silence, a voice is awaited.”

“Documento 127 is not just a passional, sincere, sometimes almost exuberant autobiography. It is also a concerned apology of Hebraism. It is, even before that, the minutes of a path of experiences and knowledge which is able to illuminate their reader- whether or not the latter is far from or near to the Hebrew condition.”
From Elena Loewenthal’s preface to the book.
