The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East by Sandy Tolan
The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East

batmalka, April 23, 2008

I heard this story on NPR in my office, at least ten years ago, I am sure. It has stayed with me as a very real and very human facet of a horribly entangled political problem.

I spent a year working and traveling in Israel in 1949-50 and have been back many times since. I have relatives who have been there since the thirties, as well as relatives who survived the Holocaust and arrived in '49 and '50, and still more who came from the USSR in the 70's. The elements of this story touch upon many of the issues confronting my own relatives in deeply important ways. The humanity of the characters in this story, as well as the resolution of their conflicting claims, offers s a small ray of hope.
