A Reading Of Efratia Gitai Correspondences

With
Makram J. Khoury, Yael Abecassi, Hanna Schygulla, Clara Khoury and special guest, Claire Bloom

Efratia was born in Haifa, 1909. Her parents had arrived only a few years before from Białystok. She was one of the founders of a youth movement that embodied the pioneer spirit of the time. In the late 1920s she traveled to Vienna to get acquainted with Freud and Adler’s theories. There she experienced the last gust of artistic vitality before the Nazis took power. Back in Palestine, she married Munio Weinraub Gitai, a young architect from the Bauhaus.

The reading gives life to a woman who belonged to a secular milieu. We encounter her family, political figures, poets, intellectuals, and above all a group of extraordinary women. Efratia wanted to preserve traces of seven decades of masterfully crafted letters. She knew it was a way to understand the fate of her country, as if the intimate embodied the history of that land.
