Description

In Feldenkrais’ little-known childhood writings we have a message from a vanished world - the self-portrait of a gifted child, and through his eyes, a window on history. Moshe wrote these pieces during WWI, when he was a month short of eleven years old. His family, community and the world around them were in crisis. Refugees were appearing at the door, massacres and lynchings were reported nearby. Meanwhile, he was in school, writing (beautifully) about his life, his family, friends, memories, and dreams. This is a multi-media presentation, with stories, music, photos, and readings from the journal.
