This session is based on Amos Oz’s novel: A tale of Love and Darkness. It focuses on the first few chapters of the book all based in the neighborhood of Mekor Baruch, where the writer had spent his early years. His notions of home and homeland as they develop in his childhood examine Jerusalem juxtaposed to Tel Aviv, Vilna, Kovno and the Kibbutz he will later make his home. The influences of parents, a very special teacher – Zelda, and the spirit of the post Holocaust years in the Land of Israel, prior to its independence, all come together to create a unique notion of what makes a Homeland.
