Look Inside

A Farm Called Kishinev

In 1903, the British offered Uasin Gishu as a sanctuary and national home for Jews escaping persecution in Eastern Europe. But in the event, this was never put into effect; and instead of refugees, Afrikaner and British officers established themselves in the area. This novel explores the experiences and feelings of an ordinary Jewish settler family in twentieth century East Africa, considering the complex interplay between international politics, colonial dominance, and anti-Semitic and anti-African racist ideologies.
