As in, I am almost finished reading a really good book that I just started not long ago, and I want to share it with you. If you have ever felt like saying, “Poor me”, or thought the world was against you, or had a really, really bad day and knew it couldn’t get any worse, I have a book for you. It is called Day After Night by Anita Diamant, and you will instantly feel that you don’t have it all that bad after all. I love this book because it is about 5 or so women prisoners being held in the Atlit prison in Israel, after being liberated from concentration camps at the end of WWII. They have dreams of going to the Holy land to start new lives after the years they spent living in hell. Once they get there, life is only a little bit improved, and not at all what you might call “living”. The book also talks about the kibbutzim, the Pioneers and the Zionist movements, all dynamic forces under British rule in what was at that time Palestine. It’s especially fascinating for me because my husband was a part of the youth movement in a kibbutz at that very time, near Haifa. He is familiar with the story, the scene, the history, everything. He can recall hearing about what was happening to the refugee prisoners, and wondering if he and the others in his kibbutz would be needed to help. It’s a valuable piece of history, which will also answer some questions about what is happening in Israel today, and a well-written story that is easy to become engrossed in. Two thumbs up from me; I highly recommend it.
