Zvi Livne

Zvi Livne (Liberman) (1891-1985) was born in Ouman,  Ukraine, to a family of farmers. He received a traditional religious education and taught himself secular subjects. He arrived in Eretz Israel in 1912 and worked in agriculture in villages and kibbutzim. In 1917, he began to publish articles, satires, stories and plays for children and young readers. One of his first books, Oded the Wanderer, was adapted into the first children`s film in Israel.
