In this chapter, Jacqueline Shohet Kahanoff reflects on Egyptian president Anwar Sadat's state visit to Israel in November 1977. She also talks about her earlier writings about her childhood in Egypt, including the story “Passover in Egypt,” and reimagines biblical narratives by likening Sadat's predecessor Gamal Abdel Nasser to the Pharaoh of Exodus. Here Jacqueline expresses her support for reconciliation and coexistence over displacement and the separation of Jews and other peoples.
