Book Review: Between the trauma of the Holocaust and the trauma of the Nakba

A book review by Avraham Burg on the Hebrew translation of Elias Khoury’s "Children of the Ghetto: My Name is Adam". The review praises the original book in Arabic and its translation to Hebrew as a creation "close to perfection". In Burg's words: "Elias Khoury’s remarkable literary skill and the brilliant Hebrew translation of Yehouda Shenhav-Sharabani (a work of art in itself) makes "Children of the Ghetto" one of the most poignant and important novels of recent years".

The review was published in Haaretz on May 11, 2018. For further reading, see the review here:
