The Bell Tolls

“I’m originally from Nazareth Illit, Israel, a very diverse city, where Jews, Christians and Muslims live together. Since I was born on Christmas Eve my parents used to invite our Christian neighbor who used to dress up as Santa and he would always come bearing gifts. In the photo my mom is holding the present he gave me and me, terrified in her arms. Perhaps it was the fake forehead that broke me.”
