1952 - I remember myself as a hungry child at the Talfiot crossing in Jerusalem, where I arrived with my parents from Iraq. I grew up without a frame, without a kindergarten, without toys and without children's books. Instead of books and Legos, we built carts from wooden boxes and drove them down the winding road to the edge of the wadi. I was a child survivor fighting for his existence in impossible conditions. Already at a young age I had to work, including as a cobbler's apprentice, to help my parents who collapsed under the burden of livelihood. From there began my arduous journey to the top. 1989 - My journey to the top of skin and tendon cream when I was appointed the director of Israeli television. I was 41 years old, a young TV executive. It was a holiday for me. I had a wonderful feeling of the one who conquered the mountain, shattered the glass ceiling and raised the flag. I entered the manager's room imbued with an intoxicating euphoria of victory - I, Nissim of Sha'al, son of Nazima and Ezekiel from Talpiot Crossing, am sitting in the coveted chair. In the book you are holding in your hands, The Shoemaker's Apprentice, is full of revelations and dramatic revelations about my personal life, including the cancer that attacked me brutally and still threatens my life; For the injury to my father and thousands of his contemporaries, who were trampled under the pressure of the Pa'inic establishment and became the walking dead in its passage; for the elite's attempt to erase our glorious past culture in the name of the lofty goal of the melting pot; for the sectarian deprivation that I also experienced of my flesh and more. At the same time, you will find here A record of personal conversations I have held over the years with key figures in Israeli politics. Nissim Mashal, one of the most senior journalists in Israel, winner of the Sokolov Award for Communication, was the CEO of Israel Television and here the head of the founding directorate of Channel 2. On television, he served as a political and political reporter and also hosted current affairs programs including " Moked", "Popolitica", "Conference Call" and "Mashal Ham".
