The Death of Uri Peled

Shammai Golan
Uri, a refugee from Eastern Europe, hoped for a normal life in Israel. But neither his marriage to an Israeli woman nor his career in the army make an Israeli of him. After commanding a reserve company in the battle for Jerusalem in 1967, Uri finds work at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, filing testimonies about the life and death of his lost community. He is haunted by eerie and vivid memories of the ghetto and jolted by every shift of consciousness.


The author's great achievement lies in arousing our sympathies for this almost dehumanized man who is ultimately seen in a tragic light.
Critic Reuven Ben-Yosef
