Book presentation: Naomi Kalwil „Liebe zu meinen Wurzeln“
Not an easy life, but a beautiful one. That’s how Naomi Kalwil sees the years in Israel in retrospect. She moves with her family from Austria to Israel in 1988 in order to escape the reemerging anti-Semitism in the wake of the Waldheim affair and to make a better life possible for the children. After their arrival in Israel, the time of integration begins through language courses at the absorption center, where the family lives with immigrants from Russia, Ethiopia, Morocco, America, Hungary, Argentina, Chile and many other countries. The children attend school; the search for a place of residence, and especially for work, is arduous, but succeeds nonetheless, and the family begins a life in a kibbutz.
The emigration is followed by twelve turbulent years in Israel, full of history and encounters, until love leads her back to Austria again.
