This book, published in celebration of the 70th anniversary of Israel, contains short conversations with prominent Israelis of today, about historical figures that changed this country.
The main unique feature in my book is the appropriate link between the historical leaders in their fields and the current public figures who remember them.
For example, Prof. Aharon Barak, former President of the Supreme Court of Israel from 1995 to 2006, talked about Gideon Hausner, who is widely known for heading the team of prosecutors in the trial of Adolf Eichmann. Barak, who survived the holocaust as a child, was Hausner's intern at this time. He told that he asked Hausner not to be part of the trial, since "the Holocaust was part of my life every day, every hour".
Among the other conversations in this book: president of Israel Reuven Rivlin on Binyamin Ze’ev Herzl and Ze’ev Jabotinsky, Yesh Atid leader, Yair Lapid on Menachem Begin, Minister of Education Naftali Bennet on David Ben Gurion, former Minister of Defense Moshe Yeelon on Yitzhak Rabin, author Meir Shalev on poet Yehuda Amichai, Nobel Prize winner Dan Shechtman on Dr. Haim Weizmann and Shai Agassi on Mobileye's entrepreneurs .
Another important part of this book is the pictures – all interesting or beautiful, some of them published in this book for the very first time. We got part of them from relatives of the historical leaders.
