The Kings Alley 4- Kiryat Shmona, Israel
While Sarit and her mother Fanny Hazan were eating the intermittent meal on the eve of Yom Kippur, they suddenly heard breaking noises in the walls of the house and noticed a groove that opened along the wall connecting the security room and the tiles that cracked into pieces.
Sarit and Fanny left the apartment immediately and called the rescue service center. They soon arrived and ordered the immediate evacuation of the building for all its occupants. An expert infrastructure constriction determined that the structure is in immediate danger to anyone in it.
The Hazan family's neighbors, Shalom and Sara Mesika raised seven children (Shmulik, Orly, Shai, Ethics, Effi, Oren, and Yamit) in the modest and small apartment: a master bedroom, the "small room", a small living room, a kitchen and a security room added to the apartment in the 1970s. Seven children who grew up in a happy and happy home.
Shalom is a holocaust survivor from Tunis, The evacuation situation brought the memories back from the day the Nazis expelled his family from their home.
The security rooms that were the safest place, to which they ran whenever the echoes of the Katyusha falls were heard, became today the most dangerous place in the house. Shalom says that the security rooms were hastily built by the state as a quick psychological response to the most bombed-out city in world history.
Since Yom Kippur, Fanny has been staying at the home of her daughter Zehavit and Sarah and Shalom Mesika with their daughter Ethics.
I seek to illuminate through the photographs the pain of families who were forced to be displaced from their homes suddenly and without an alternative precision solution, parting from a home where they lived for decades and where they raised their children, memories, separation, and unknown future.
