This chapter reviews the books Bishloshah nofim: yetziratah hamukdemet shel Leah Goldberg (In Three Landscapes: Leah Goldberg’s Early Writings) (2016), by Natasha Gordinsky, and Nesi’ah venesi’ah medumah: Leah Goldberg begermanyah 1930–1933 (Journey and Imaginary Journey: Leah Goldberg in Germany, 1930–1933) (2014), by Yfaat Weiss. Both In Three Landscapes and Journey and Imaginary Journey focus on the career of Leah Goldberg, a modernist poet, novelist, playwright, and literary critic, and the role she played in Hebrew culture from the 1940s onward. The books explore how Goldberg was shaped by her firsthand witnessing of the Nazi rise to power and how she grappled with the scope of Nazi genocide in its aftermath. They highlight Goldberg’s importance as a European and Hebrew intellectual, whose modernist and humanist commitments shaped the direction of Israeli letters in the second half of the twentieth century.
