Le Grand Akshan

Grisha Starosta was 21 years old when he left his wealthy bourgeois home and followed his dream to become a pioneer in Palestine, but he had to leave the orange groves of Kfar Saba and return to Romania just a few months later when he learned he had a daughter. Many years would pass until he would begin his long journey back to the land of Israel.
Only now, after reading a short article in the newspaper, regarding the story of the ‘Struma’ – a ship carrying Jewish refugees from Romania to Palestine that was sunk in 1942 – will Grisha’s great-grandson begin to uncover the full story.Grisha Starosta was 21 years old when he left his wealthy bourgeois home and followed his dream to become a pioneer in Palestine, but he had to leave the orange groves of Kfar Saba and return to Romania just a few months later when he learned he had a daughter.
