Israeli storyteller Noa Baum grew up in Jerusalem in the shadow of ancestral traumas of the Holocaust an ongoing wars. Stories of the past and fear of annihilation in the wars of the 1960s through the ‘80s shaped her perceptions and identity. In America, she met a Palestinian woman who had grown up under Israeli Occupation, and as they shared memories of war years in Jerusalem an unlikely friendship blossomed. Born and raised in Jerusalem, Noa Baum is an award-winning storyteller performing internationally. She acted with Jerusalem Khan Theater and studied theater at NYU and with Uta Hagen. Voted by the Washington Jewish Week as one of ten most interesting local Jews, she has lived in America since 1990.
