Farewell, Little Messa



“How did you survive? How did you not go insane? How did you not commit suicide?” I ask myself, but I don’t have a response that can really explain any of it, or the anger I feel toward myself, or my self-revulsion. I ill-treated myself just as everybody else ill-treated me, sometimes even more. The fear of encountering myself blinded me and prevented my re-birth—from within myself, from my gaunt and fragile body. But a body that no longer retained a complete Holocaust.

Farewell, Little Messa is one woman’s true story of a transformation achieved when she visited India. Beginning with a sudden memory recall of a sexually abusive childhood in mid-twentieth century Israel, this lyrical memoir reads like an exquisitely crafted novel as we watch young Messa grow from hiding in closets and fearing nightly visits by her brother, to a loveless marriage, the joy of motherhood, and finally her journey to India where she finds her own private Ganges and assumes her new and whole identity.


שלום לך מסה הקטנה, ניצה סקולניק
