One thought on “Jorge Luis Borges was a secret student of Professor Shoshani

  1. Teresa Porzecanski

    Since I wrote myself a fiction novel (Ïrse y andar,published first edition by Ediciones B in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 2011) whose main character is inspired in Shoshani ( whom I had casually met in 1967 in the Kehila of Montevideo), I did an exhaustive research on him and found out that the Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges did not ever meet Shoshani personally, but that some of Shoshani’s admirers told Borges a lot of anecdotes about his incredible capabilities and knowledge. Listening to them, Borges was inspired enough to write his celebrated short story “Funes el memorioso”.
