Summary At the age of twenty-one, Arnon Tamir was deported to Poland from his home in Germany. A Journey Back describes Tamir's life in Germany, his deportation, and two return trips to Germany: in 1959 to clarify his claim for reparations from the German government, and thirty years later, at the invitation of the city of Stuttgart. As Tamir interweaves memories from different times and places, he draws startling comparisons between his own experiences of oppression and exile, and his life as one of the new settlers, in Palestine, themselves responsible for forcing the Arabs from their native land. Tamir's fluid narrative shows that there is no easy way to tell such a story, that the "journey back" is neither well defined nor easy.
