"Israeli storyteller Noa Baum grew up in Jerusalem in the shadow of ancestral traumas of the Holocaust and on going wars. Stories of the past and fear of annihilation in the wars of the 1960's through the '80's shaped her perceptions and identity. In American, she met a Palestinian woman who had grown up under Israeli Occupation, and as they shared memories of war years in Jerusalem an unlikely friendship blossomed. A Land Twice Promised delves into the heart of one of the world's most enduring and complex conflicts. Baum's deeply personal memoir recounts her journey from girlhood in Israel to her adult encounter with "the other" with honesty, compassion and humor, capturing the drama of a nation at war and her discovery of humanity in the enemy"
