Tel Aviv

From Dream to City

In Tel Aviv – From Dream to City Joachim Schlör brings the reader closer to this "most talked about city." The author interviewed numerous inhabitants and gathered information from books, travel accounts, newspaper articles and memoirs. He looks at the city from its origins right up to the present: Tel Aviv as a centre of immigration that contains reminders of each immigrant’s mother country; as a catalyst between East and West; and – not least – as a place of transformation for Jews who fled the Nazi terror.
