In one of the two bachelorette rooms, the girls secretly hung, on strings they stretched under the beds, silk petticoats and nightgowns from home, which they could not part with in favor of the clothing store. As long as they lived in tents and a barn devoid of privacy, they hid them in their backpacks; Now wear them and experience again, like in the Soviet Union, an underground thrill. Home is the story of a kibbutz from its birth to its death. This is the story of people who left their home to get home. They abandoned their parents, their language and Mother Russia for their own country, and tried to get rid of the human longing for family, privacy and property, in order to create a better society according to their understanding. Some of them were able to die before their life's work was shattered. Some are still here. In its intense and concise style, the book unfolds a sweeping and astonishing plot, based on a meticulous factual reconstruction. It guides the story of the life of the kibbutz through all the stages of formation, cracking and crashing, and focuses on seven main heroes - their loves, their fights and the manifestations of tenderness and cruelty, strength and ridiculousness. Home is a bold literary work, which breaks free from the conventional distinction between the literary and the documentary, and thereby becomes an impressive and heart-wrenching work; A work that embraces the fundamental questions of Israeli history and culture, and gives them life, emotions, pain and greatness. - Dov Elboim.
