Dr. Nir Arielli, a lecturer in international history and politics at the University of Leeds, UK, discusses with host Gilad Halpern the tumultuous life of his great aunt, Leah Trachtman-Palchan, a Communist activist who was deported from British-ruled Palestine to the Soviet Union only to reconnect with her Zionism decades later. Her edited memoir, Between Tel Aviv and Moscow: A Life of Dissent and Exile in Mandate Palestine and the Soviet Union, has recently appeared in English.
