The Story of Joseph 'Tommy' Lapid

Book - 2012
Rate this:

A poignant and personal memoir of a holocaust survivor, journalist, and unorthodox politician, and the story of Israel and Israeli politics in the 20th century

From seeing his father taken away to a concentration camp to arriving in Tel Aviv at the birth of Israel, Tommy Lapid lived every major incident of Jewish life since the 1930s firsthand. This sweeping narrative, a "posthumous autobiography" written by his son, is mesmerizing for anyone with an interest in how Israel became what it is today. It encompasses the Jewish experience of 1930s Europe, the birth of Israel, London in the 1960s, and Robert Maxwell's businesses in the 1980s as well as taking on the 21st century Israeli political system. Lapid's uniquely unorthodox opinions--he belonged to neither left nor right and was Jewish, but vehemently secular--expose the many contradictions inherent in Jewish life today.
