When Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff went to Israel in 1954, she had limited communication with her parents back in Egypt, who, in 1958, moved to Israel, where they were able to exchange information that the Egyptian censors disallowed. In this chapter, Jacqueline reflects upon a lost world of cultural interaction between Jews and Arabs, and reveals how her parents offered their Cairo apartment as a refuge for rebels from Algeria and Tunisia who were fighting for independence from France. She also describes the end of an era of Levantine coexistence in Egypt.
