In a recent Guardian review, Lavie Tidhar called the late Israeli author Batya Gur’s Murder on a Kibbutz (1991) one of the top ten books of all time about Israel. The daughter of Polish Holocaust survivors, Gur had a special interest in how kibbutznikim who came from the death camps found solace in the rhythms of communal life. “Gur captured what it was like to grow up on a kibbutz in a way no one else did,” said Tidhar, “uncovering the simmering tensions beneath the sun-drenched communal ideal.”
