All My Mothers: The Story of Yehudit Kleinman
Hidden and raised as a Christian in an convent, Yehudit had to make a fateful decision that would shape the course of her life.
Yehudit Kleinman was born in Venice in 1938; her mother and grandmother moved to Milan shortly thereafter. In January 1944, she was taken to a convent for safety, where she was hidden and raised as a Christian. After the war, Yehudit had to make a fateful choice – to remain at the convent or to immigrate to Israel as a Jew. She spent several months in a children's home in Selvino, in northern Italy. Yehudith grew up in Israel, joined the IDF and became a teacher. She has lived much of her adult life in Kfar Saba and is the mother of two children.
