The story of how a 13-year-old girl became the mother of a Jewish man’s second wife has been told in a dramatic new documentary, and her father was convicted of the crime.
The story was revealed as Israel celebrates the 100th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel, and the story of a girl who grew up with a Jewish father and Muslim mother is part of the country’s new focus on the Holocaust and the Holocaust memorial.
In one of the most poignant moments of the documentary, which is set to be shown in Jerusalem next month, a young girl from the village of Safed, in the occupied West Bank, says she never wanted to marry the man who killed her father.
“My life changed in a matter of minutes,” she says.
“I was not allowed to marry anyone, and it was the first time in my life that I had the freedom to make a decision.”
“I had my choice.
My father was killed by the Arabs.
I knew that he would be killed, so I wanted to go to my mother, and I said, ‘Mama, please give me a husband.'”
The girl was 16 when she first married her father, and she told her mother what she was doing, and that she would marry him if he would only take her to his house.
The young girl was later taken to the house of a family friend in Safed.
“She said to me, ‘Don’t go there, my father is dead,'” says the girl, who also gave her father her name, Kalia.
After that, the girl’s mother, who was married to the man, told her to come to her house, where she met a man, who had already been married to her mother for nearly five years.
On hearing of the girl being taken to her father-in-law’s house, her father told her, “You’re going to marry him.”
At the time, the child was living with her mother and her sister, in Safa.
But after a few months of living with the man’s family, the woman told the man she was leaving, saying she was pregnant.
Her father-to-be, the boy, did not accept the decision, and he had his two sons, and three daughters, taken away.
When the woman heard her mother’s voice, the young girl said, “My life will change forever.
You will marry me.”
The woman’s husband, who lived in another village, did what he could to get the girl to marry, and when she refused, he threw her into the river, according to the film.
Eventually, the mother and daughter agreed to the marriage, and they became a family.
Kalia was married four times, and lived with her father in a different village in the village, where they had three children.
She later married another man, and had a daughter, who is now 14.
Both her father and the boy’s mother were executed, but the father’s death was never reported.
This year marks 100 years since the birth of Israel.
