Biography[ edit ] A Marxist Zionist as a young man, Judt dropped his faith in Zionism after youthful experience in Israel in the s and came to see a Jewish state as an anachronism; he moved away from Marxism in the s and s.
In later life, he described himself as "a universalist social democrat". He was also well known for his views on Israel, which generated significant debate after he advocated a one-state solution to the Israeli—Palestinian conflict.
According to journalist David Herman, Judt's directorship of the Remarque Institute, his book Postwar and his articles on Israel made him "one of the best-known public intellectuals in America," having previously been "a fairly obscure British historian, specialising in modern French history".
He was raised by his mother, whose parents had emigrated from Russia and Romaniaand his father, who was born in Belgium and had immigrated as a boy to Ireland and then subsequently to England. Judt's parents lived in North Londonbut due to the closure of the local hospitals in response to an outbreak of infant dysenteryJudt was born in a Salvation Army maternity unit in Bethnal Greenin the East End of London.

The piece also refers to "a month of heavy radiation" for cancer inan illness unrelated to his death from ALS several years later. European history[ edit ] Judt's experiences in Paris contributed to what would become a long and fruitful relationship with French political culture.
He translated his Cambridge doctorate into French and published it in as La reconstruction du parti socialiste: It was introduced by Annie Kriegel, who along with Maurice Agulhon was an important influence upon his early work as a French social historian.
Judt's second book, Socialism in Provence — A Study in the Origins of the French Modern Left, an "enquiry into a political tradition that shaped a nation",  was an attempt to explain early origins and the continuities of left-wing politics in the region. More than any other work by Judt, Socialism in Provence was based upon extensive archival research.

French Intellectuals, —, Judt moved away both from social history towards intellectual history, and from the endorsement of French Marxist traditions to their critique. In Past Imperfect, he castigated French intellectuals of the postwar era, above all Jean-Paul Sartre for their "self-imposed moral amnesia".
In Judt's reading, French thinkers such as Jean-Paul Sartre were blinded by their own provincialism, and unable to see that their calls for intellectual authenticity should have required them to interrogate their own attachment to communism and criticize the Soviet Union for its policies in postwar eastern Europe.
This was in some sense a criticism from within, using French sources and polemical style against famous French intellectuals. Judt made a similar case in some of his more popular writings. For instance, following the recognition by then President Jacques Chiracinof the responsibility of the French state during the Collaborationon the anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv raidhe claimed in an op-ed published by The New York Times that: One reason was their near-obsession with Communism.
