To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Brandeis University Study Abroad Program, I wrote the following essay on my experience as a student in The Hiatt Institute in Israel in 1961. It has just appeared in the Brandeis Alumni Online Newsletter. The experience stayed with me and I am currently working on a novel, The Girl Who Counted Numbers, set in Jerusalem in 1961 during the Adolf Eichmann trial.
