The installation is combined as part of the hospital's rooms and attempts to integrate itself within the site's history. It tells the story of the child “Patient A.E”, one of many children of immigrants to Israel in the 1950s, who were claimed to be ill solely on the basis of race and origin, and forcibly taken from their families for treatments that included exposure to strong radiation.
