When Noa Ben Artzi-Pelossof spoke at the funeral of her grandfather Yitzhak Rabin, she touched the world’s heart. She does so again, in this deeply moving memoir and plea for peace.
A stirring voice from yet another Israeli generation living in turmoil and in danger, Noa, at age nineteen, reflects on her life to date: a childhood scarred by tragedy and rescued by her family’s love; a constant fear-fed by random bombingsfor the lives of relatives and friends; the chaotic impact of war-Lebanon, the Intifada, the Gulf war; the hate from outside, and now from within, Israel. Noa talks of her grandfather’s assassin and the extremists who nourished his violence.
She shares her precious memories of her grandfather, with whom she lived until the age of six and to whom she remained close for the rest of his life. She offers insights into his transformation from soldier to leader to peacemaker, his courageous determination to change the course of the Middle East conflict, and the steps he took in search of a lasting peace for future generations of Israelis. Noa speaks to him, and to the world.
A book that is pure, passionate and unfailingly honest-and goes straight to the heart.
