Robi Damelin’s son, David, was killed by a Palestinian sniper in 2002 while guarding a checkpoint near a settlement during his army reserve service. She speaks to Israeli, Palestinian audiences all over the world to demand that reconciliation be a part of any peace agreement.

Mazen Faraj is the Palestinian Co-Director of the Parents Circle and lives in Dheisheh Refugee Camp in the West Bank. In 2002, his father, aged 62, was killed by an Israeli soldier. He chose the way of reconciliation and believes it will lead to justice and peace.
