Letters of Hope

This year, on International Peace Day, bereaved Israeli and Palestinian parents
wrote letters to children they lost due to the conflict.

They are left with their memories, their empty rooms and a drive to make sure
that no one else suffers the same loss and pain.

No more deaths. No more empty rooms.
