HERstory, not HIStory

Exodus uit de vuurtoren | Exodus from the lighthouse, Dutch memoires written by Dina-Perla Portnaar

Dina-Perla grows up in Jewish ultra-Orthodoxy and a stifling reality, in which nothing is what it seems. As a young girl, she fights for freedom and love, flees her parental home, and decides never to return. Exodus from the Lighthouse is a gripping revelation and deals with Dina-Perla’s extraordinary life lessons from that turbulent period. Never has such an entourage behind closed doors, including her time at the orthodox school the Cheider, been described so penetratingly and from the inside out as now.

Ten years after her escape, Dina-Perla is confronted with her biological childlessness. She sets out to investigate. Is it possible to unravel the truth? The memoir deals with some reflective testimonies, focused on the experience of the past. From a spiritual point of perspective, emancipated women are born. Strong women, however, are shaped through the course of their lives.
