Dov Hoenig

Dov Hoenig had a long career in film in Israel, Europe and ultimately in Hollywood. He edited over fifty films including “Thief”, “The Keep”, “Manhunter”, “Last of the Mohicans” and “Heat” directed by Michael Mann and Andrew Davis’ “The Fugitive” for which, along with co-editors, he received an Oscar nomination for best picture editing. Hoenig was born in Romania in 1932 and after WWII, one of the darkest periods in the history of the world and of the large Jewish community of Romania, he left his family to emigrate alone to Palestine. Rue du Triomphe was first published in French and was chosen as one of the 10 best first novels by the jury of the Prix Stanislas.
