  Out There   

A travel diary that follows the author’s life in the decade following the 2006 Second Lebanon War. Upon Omri’s crossing the border fence back to Israel, he must confront the "hero" image of the Israeli man and face a new reality of a combat soldier who deals with a mental injury – an injury he conceals from those around him, but especially from himself.

It’s time to raise the unheard voice of soldiers who’ve survived combat, but didn’t return from war. Out There will take you on the author's journey of uncovering, concealing – and ultimately accepting PTSD.

Thank you for such eye opening book that illustrates and clarifies things even for someone who has treating shell-shocked people for more than 40 years.

His writing is special. It holds a combination of innocence and sincerity while successfully delivering even moments of rage and anger with a kind of peace.

This book is a must-read work of art for anyone living here in Israel or around the world!

  Omri Ginzburg  

Omri was born in 1984 and raised in the shadow of his father's and uncle's heroism – two war veterans who sustained physical injuries in the Yom Kippur War (1973). At the age of 18, Omri enlisted for mandatory service in the Israeli Defense Force.

In 2017 he moved to Barcelona, where he continued writing this book in an attempt to find an answer for his relentless nightmares. It wasn’t until he read his whole story that he was able to discover the reason for his torment.

He also understood it was time to stop hiding.
