Franz Rosenzweig was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in the early months of 1922. By the end of 1922, he could no longer write. As his condition worsened and oral dictation was no longer possible, a special typewriter (visible in this picture) was brought in to assist him in his work. During this period, he collaborated with Martin Buber on a modern Jewish translation of the Bible.
