On the final day of the conference Thinking in Dark Times, celebrating Hannah Arendt's one-hundredth birthday, a group of attendees gathered by Arendt's gravesite to hear her friend Jack Blum offer some remembrances of her. Blum's stories offered a glimpse of Arendt's life in a way that her published writings do not. Blum, a student of Heinrich Blücher, Arendt's husband, also offered insights into Arendt and Blücher's loving and intellectually rich relationship. This chapter presents a transcript of an interview with Blum that took place at his house near Washington, D.C., during the summer of 2007.
