What drives the generation of 20-40 year olds in Israel and Iran? This question forms the background of the novel "Der geheime Basar" (The Secret Bazaar) written by the Israeli author Ron Leshem with the help of his Iranian friends. The idea for the novel began with a Facebook request that initiated an exciting process of sharing and mutual reflection. Hamed Eshrat presents his graphic novel "Kaiserschnitt", telling the story of his family during the Iranian Revolution in the years 1978-1979.

An event organized by the Jewish Cultural Festival, Berlin.
