Writer Maruan Paschen has been blogging about his trip to Israel on the Akademie’s digital platform Schlosspost. He reads to us from his blog and talks about his journey.
»My father will be there. Or not. Probably not. I will be there. Everyone else also. The sun will be there, food, stones, sand. Jews will be there, Arabs, children, men, women. A lead. Some drawings in the sand, something written on a wall, a note in the air, sent from the distance. I remember herbs and huge concrete tubes at the beach. I remember burning tires, cheese in the sand. A lead. Some words I’ve forgotten, some I never knew. Some guy that looks like me, some beach. A lead.«
