Scope and content

Interview with Nelly Fanous, 64, is from Israel and emigrated to Canada in 1980. She married into a Coptic family who descend from Egypt. The Fanous family are very well known in Palestine because her husband’s grandfather was a scribe for the Coptic Church in Egypt, and he was sent to Palestine to write copies of the Bible. Her husband’s uncle, who lived in Egypt, was a well-known iconographer for the Coptic Church. In this interview, Nelly talks about reasons for leaving Israel for Canada, her connections with Israel, her experiences settling in Canada, and her relationship with the Coptic Church. Interviewer is Sarah Al Naqeeb.
