At a talk hosted by Goldsmith Chambers on Friday 5 May, Robi Damelin, Mazen Faraj, and Rami Elhanan described their painful journey of forgiveness and reconciliation following the death of their loved ones in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
The speakers are members of the Parents Circle, an organisation formed solely of bereaved Israeli and Palestinian family members, whose common goal is to meet with each other as “human beings first and foremost” and not as enemies. In what was a moving and inspiring talk, the group shared their personal stories, as well as their collective efforts to advocate domestically and internationally for a non-violent political solution to the conflict, one which recognises the humanity of both peoples.
