DESCRIPTION

Leah Tsemel was born in Haifa in 1945 to a family that fled Europe just before the Holocaust. Most of her family was lost in the Holocaust. She was a member of the left-radical Israeli group Matzpen, opposing Zionism and occupation.

β€œIt seems that my parents and others who wanted to build the state of Israel did not understand that it is impossible to build a new future on the relics of oppression,” she notes.
