Come and hear Linda Roberts' fascinating story about her family's connection with the history of Palestine.
Come and hear Linda Roberts’ fascinating story. People expressed amazement that I would spend 2 ½ weeks touring Israel with a German tour group. But I wanted to understand more about my heritage. With a mother, grandparents and great-grandparents born in Palestine I needed to learn more about the German settlements they established there from the 1860s. This relatively unknown slice of history of today’s Israel is one of hardship and prosperity; where the Kaiser visited in 1898 and struggles ensued with the world wars ending in deportation. How does Israel regard this part of their heritage?
