Ofer Laszewicki author of "Israel fuera de foco"
Ofer Laszewicki (Journalism, Class of 2011) has written a book titled: "Israel fuera de foco, retratos de la sociedad más allá del conflicto". This book describes Israeli society and the lack of information that we receive regarding what the country is really like. Laszewicki says that "Israel is not just about conflicts with Palestinian people, images of tanks, wars or controversial statements by politicians".
For the author, despite the experience of foreign correspondents who report on the region, "there is an evident lack of information about Israeli society characterised by a demographic and social diversity which is fruit of the variety of experiences, liturgical traditions, and customs of the Jewish people who come from all over the world".
The book explores several profiles and locations within Israel to foster an understanding of its roots, its strengths and weaknesses, and its own internal conflicts.
