I first met Damian Pachter at Jerusalem’s Malha Mall. It was just a few weeks after he exiled himself from Argentina, his place of birth, out of fear for his life.

He still seemed a bit harried, as though he had not quite recovered from the trauma of abruptly leaving behind all he had – a job as a journalist, an apartment in Once (pronounced own-say), Buenos Aires’s old Jewish neighborhood, and a mother for whom Pachter was the entire world.
