The Trachtenbergs and Kelners are Anat’s family. They were were Lubliners. They lived, worked and loved in Lublin as part of large families, surrounded by friends and community. Most of the Trachtenbergs and Kelners were murdered in the Shoa, but some survived the war by immigrating to Canada, Israel, and Australia, or escaping eastward towards the Soviets. This is the story of Anat’s father, his journey around the world, and his eventual return to his Polish roots.
Ever since Anat Harrel remembers, she has loved history. This fascination with the lessons of the past shaped her career choices as she spent many years teaching history, language arts, ancient civilizations, geography and humanities in public schools, Jewish day schools and synagogue religious schools in Northern California. Although born in Israel, Anat spent most of her childhood abroad. Then after serving in the IDF, she ended up in the San Francisco Bay Area where she raised a family. She returned to Israel in 2011 and became a licensed Israel tour guide, taking her passions to a new level. Anat now lives in the beautiful Galilee, on Kibbutz Hannaton, a small, religious, egalitarian, multi denominational, intentional community kibbutz.
