Hannah Arendt caused a great uproar in the 1960s by coining the subversive concept of "banality of evil" when referring to the Nazi evil. Her private life was no less controversial thanks to her love affair with a renowned German philosopher and Nazi supporter Martin Heidegger. She was one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century who both lived through and wrote about the open wounds of modern times. Arendt's insights about the refugee condition, nature of evil and totalitarian leanings of any ideology sound today more relevant than ever.
