Love on the Shore

Literaturhaus Basel

The discussion will be in English.

In the coastal city of Aschkelon, between sand and sea, three Shoah survivors attempt to create a new existence. Their children want to leave the past behind and live in the sound of sixties hit music. But the past casts a long shadow. The deportations of Jews from Paris and the resistance in Central Europe are woven into the biographies of Govrin’s characters along with the flight of the Jewish people from Morocco, the diaspora in Buenos Aires, and life in the still-young state of Israel.
