Author Talk Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft “War Widow”

Join us for a talk with Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft, author of War Widow: How the Six Day War Changed My Life.

Dr. Ziva Bakman-Flamhaft is a lecturer in Political Science, a Fulbright scholar, and a memoirist. In 1968 as a young war widow in Israel, she    became an activist and a mentor to other war widows. A year later she arrived in the US to serve her government and remained in New York ever since. Her first book Israel on the Road to Peace:  Accepting the unacceptable was published in 1996. In addition, she has published numerous articles, book reviews and book chapters including “From Sufferers to Activists: Israeli and Palestinian Women Talk on War,     Bereavement and Peace,” and “Iron Breaks Too,” on the same subject. Two chapters from her memoir were printed in different publications. Inspired by the 2015 Nobel laureate, Svetlana Alexievich, who documented human suffering by tyranny and war, Flamhaft plans to publish her interviews of Israeli women and her Palestinian assistant in a book form.
