In memory of Risa Domb

Themes of childhood in Eretz-Israel, the complex relations of the second generation of survivors and Germany, orthodoxy and secularism, and being a woman artist are central to the prolific and acclaimed writing of Ruth Almog. These themes are revisited and crystallised in her latest book The Whistle of the Ocarina. Her talk about how the ocarina became the metaphor for almost her entire writing highlighted the role childhood experiences have played in shaping it.
