Aviya’s summer/Ha-Kayitz Shel Aviya
During the 1951 summer vacation, shortly after the founding of Israel, 10-year-old Aviya visits her depressive mother Henya in a small village near Tel Aviv. Henya survived the Second World War and the Shoah in a concentration camp, and immigrated to Israel after the liberation. Just released from a psychiatric institution, she finds herself still unable to deal with her past. In the small village, mother and daughter encounter the local people’s lack of understanding and mocking.
A discussion with Cilly Kugelmann, program director, will round off the event.
