An Israeli woman's harrowing tale about her husband, an abducted soldier
For two years Karnit Goldwasser searched for answers about Udi, her kidnapped husband. What had happened to the IDF soldier in his last day of reserve duty in the Israeli army? In 2006 he was on routine patrol near the Lebanese border when he was attacked and captured by Hezbollah and never heard from again. For two years Karnit could not find out if her husband was dead or alive. Twenty-four months of frustration and anguish later, her hus-band's mutilated body was finally returned to her. Now his widow has written a tell-all book about her wrenching ordeal.
Goldwasser is now on a mission to share with others the journey she traveled for the truth. She will be appearing in our area this fall for the first time. On October 3, 2015, at 8:30 PM, Goldwasser will be at the Jack Barrack School, located at 272 Bryn Mawr Avenue in Bryn Mawr. She will be talking about her new book, Finding the Way Back to You already in print in Israel, which relates Karnit's personal experience. In moving detail she recounts her search for answers and the lengths she went to obtain them. Goldwasser vividly recalls standing in front of the Lebanese President at the UN, meeting the Pope and Prime Ministers and beseeching Foreign Ministers and politicians. Ultimately, the book is an ode to her valiant struggle and a last connection with Udi, the love of her life.
A question and answer session will follow. Cost is $18 for Phillyisrael members and $25 for non-members. All are invited to the dessert and coffee reception with the first time author.
