Orphans of the Revolution

“A family’s story is the starting point for a discussion of the moral and political ideas (and clichés) that shook Europe and the Middle East throughout the 20th Century and still reverberate today.
The story begins in the 1930s in the Warsaw Pawiak Prison where Igal Bursztyn’s mother was incarcerated for illegal Communist activities. It ends in an Israeli jail on the West Bank, where Bursztyn himself served as a jailor to Palestinian prisoners as part of his reserve duty. How did my mother’s son become a jailor? “
