About Aviva Dayan Gefen
Aviva Dayan Geffen, born in Afula in 1922 and died, a suicide, in 1967, five months after her brother, General Moshe Dayan, triumphantly recaptured the Old City of Jerusalem in the Six Day War.
One of her daughters, Nurit, also took her own life at the age of 26.
Following are excerpts, translated by Naomi Danis, from Isha Yekara (Lovely Lady), a heartbreaking memoir by Aviva's son—the poet, lyricist, playwright, children's book author, and Maariv colum-nist Yehonatan Geffen. 12 LILITH -SPRING 2002
