"My father didn't like the word 'spy' - to him, his mother simply helped shape the formation of Israel," Miel de Botton

This is the story of Yolande Gabai de Botton, the grandmother of singer/songwriter Miel de Botton and philosopher Alain de Botton.

To this day considered to be Israel’s greatest spy, Yolande used her charm, social connections and journalist role in her home city of Cairo to pass on intelligence to the newly forming State of Israel. Even putting her own life, and that of her son’s, on the line.
