An interview with Prof. Yehouda Shenhav of Tel Aviv University and the Van Leer Institute, and editor of the Maktoob book series. Shenhav spoke about Salman Natour, a year since his passing. Natour's book, "Walking on Winds," has just been published in Hebrew – the first in a new project of the Van Leer Institute and Olam Hadash Publishing for the translation of Arab literature into Hebrew.
Only 0.4% of the Israeli Jewish public can read a novel in Arabic, and this project aims to bring quality literature from the Arab world to the reader of Hebrew.
The interview can be seen from minutes 19:00 to 23:30.
