The Girl Who Stole My Holocaust: A Memoir

Noam Chayut

“She took from me the idea that absolute evil exists during this global, and the assumption that i used to be avenging it and struggling with opposed to it. For that woman, I embodied absolute evil ... on account that then i've been left with no my Holocaust, and because then every thing in my existence has assumed a brand new that means: belongingness is blurred, delight is missing, trust is faltering, contrition is heightening, forgiveness is being born.”

The woman Who Stole My Holocaust is the deeply relocating memoir of Chayut’s trip from keen Zionist conscript at the entrance line of Operation protecting guard to top campaigner opposed to the Israeli career. As he makes an attempt to make experience of his personal existence in addition to his position in the wider clash round him, he slowly starts off to question his soldier’s calling, Israel’s justifications for invasion, and the ever present challenge of ancient victimhood.

Noam Chayut’s exploration of a tender soldier’s lifestyles is among the such a lot compelling memoirs to emerge from Israel for a very long time.
