Amos Oz, celebrated Israeli author, wrote over 30 novels and short stories, widely translated from the Hebrew, poignant expressions of the human condition. He was an ardent advocate for peace, who wrote passionately on the scourge of extremism. Oz famously said, ‘We can fold all the moral imperatives, the Ten Commandments, and the human virtues, into a single commandment: Thou shalt not inflict pain. That is all. Do not hurt.’
His daughter Fania Oz-Salzberger, joined by his translator Nicholas de Lange, Simon Schama and Jonathan Freedland, discuss his life, legacy and inestimable contribution to international culture.
