The Soviet-Israeli War 1967-1973: Award-winning Israeli journalists and historians Isabella Ginor and Gideon Remez discuss their new book from Hurst/Oxford University Press. Relying on hitherto unexplored evidence such as the memoirs of Soviet veterans, their groundbreaking research shows how Israel's victory in the Six-Day War became a six-year, head-on clash with a global superpower. Some 50,000 Soviet servicemen fought against Israeli forces on the Egyptian front alone, turning the Suez Canal into the hottest arena of the Cold War and preparing Egypt's surprise offensive across the canal in the Yom Kippur War.
Ginor and Remez are fellows of the Truman Institute, Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Their previous book, Foxbats over Dimona: The Soviets' Nuclear Gamble in the Six-Day War (Yale, 2007) won the silver medal of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Daily life is complicated, dangerous and full of yearning.The living and the dead, dreams and walking life coexist in an uneasy world overflowing with absurdity, humor, sadness and compassion. Adapted from acclaimed Israeli writer Etgar Keret's book of short stories, this multimedia performance inventively combines puppetry, theatre and film.
