Short biography
Eva Etzioni-Halevy was born in Vienna, Austria and hid from the invading Germans as a baby. The family managed to escape to Italy, where they spent most of the years of World War II, partly in an Italian concentration camp and partly in hiding. They emigrated to the British Mandate of Palestine in 1945. She attended a religious boarding school, and then studied sociology at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and at Tel Aviv University, where she was awarded a PhD degree. Eva spent time in the USA and Australia
before returning to Israel and joining the faculty of Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv as a professor of political sociology. She published 14 academic books and numerous scholarly articles in both Hebrew and English before turning to fiction writing. Her first novel was The Song of Hannah, which drew inspiration from the Bible and the unusual family described in the First Book of Samuel. She is married and has three grown children.
