Deborah Feldman: You can never erase the hate virus against the Jews

Deborah Feldman was committed without knowing his future husband at 17 and with this age, he got married (or married). She had a son at 19 and escaped from the Satmar Jasidian community of Williamsburg (New York) at 23. She ranged with her paternal grandparents because she had also fled her. She began reading forbidden books. "She was alone and isolated. At home there were many showcases like these [notes two high glazed walls with shelves up to the ceiling] full of sacred books. Only for men. It was easier to access the books of the public library ». She was given her in Unorthodox (Lumen), which was a series of impact. Now, in Exodus. My little orthodox trip to Berlin (Lumen) tells the new life of her with the past always there.

The parents of Deborah Feldman were "rare, but the problem is that they were divorced. A broken family in my community [about 2,000 members] was the worst possible scandal. I was the only girl in a broken family ». She was a young man wondered around the world in which she lived her mother (who over time married a woman) and she dreamed that other worlds were possible.

Deborah Feldman says he wants to tell now the case of a boy who doubted and who was drugged "with psychotropic medicines. He did not need that medication. They kept it in silence. Years later, the boy escaped. But he had the brain damaged after so many years with lithium. He did not recover and committed suicide. This focused public attention in practice, very old in my community, drugging those who generate problems. When my mother married my father she did not know that he had a mental disability, she found out about it on the night of the wedding. My father had the mentality of a seven-year-old boy, made fun of him in the community, he was the town's fool. No one from New York wanted to marry him and that's why they brought a poor woman from another country [England]. She promised him jewelry, money. She found her by a farmhouse. The family rejected it. She fell into depression. After her delivery he was told that she suffered depression post delivery, but I do not think she was like that. She began to give medications, lithium, to attack her and she was silent. My mother to live had to renege from her past, but I am that test. She married a woman who also abandoned the community.
