Ma quando accade che un intero popolo si trovi all'improvviso espropriato delle sue dimore, l. a. domanda che passa, amara, di bocca in bocca è soltanto una: che wonderful fa quella bellezza, e che advantageous fa l'anima di chi in quelle case, in quei palazzi, in quei giardini, ci ha vissuto, ci ha pianto e ci ha gioito, according to una vita intera? Questa storia ha inizio nel 1948, quando gli inglesi, partendo da Israele, lasciarono due popoli in lotta: l'uno con tutto, l'altro con niente.

Insieme agli effetti di un conflitto storico che dura da allora, Suad Amiry, con profonda grazia e humour dissacrante, si confronta con un tema universale e potente com'è quello della casa, che finisce in keeping with coincidere con los angeles nostra stessa identità, con l. a. nostra stessa, comune, storia.

Wirkt die virtuelle Identität auf die reale zurück? Wenn ja, mit welchen Konsequenzen? Werden reale Beziehungen durch virtuelle Freundschaften ersetzt?
Es ist nötig, den Begriff der Identität zunächst zu erläutern und zu definie-ren, bevor Antworten auf die gestellten Fragen gefunden werden können. Des Weiteren ist zu klären, used to be die person dazu bewegt eine Scheinidentität anzunehmen und in welchem Zusammenhang von einem Flow-Effekt ge-sprochen werden kann. Besteht die Gefahr von Online-Abhängigkeit und halten virtuelle Romanzen dem Wechsel ins reale Leben stand?
