In his work ‘Asylum’, Be’er examines concepts such as identity, foreignness, oppression, freedom, belonging, homeland, longing, and home. According to him, these concepts are ones that are relevant to every human being from an existential view, wherever he or she may happen to be situated in place and time. The quest for a place that is identified as a home is part of the human existential experience.
