Video recording – Clinging onto hope: A conversation with a Palestinian and an Israeli father

How can we harness hope and hold onto humanity as the Israel-Palestine conflict intensifies global divisions? In this recording The Forgiveness Project’s founder, Marina Cantacuzino, talks to Bassam Aramin, a Palestinian and Rami Elhanan, an Israeli, whose lives were brought together by grief.

In 1997 Elhanan’s 13‑year-old daughter Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber. In 2007 Aramin’s 10-year-old daughter Abir was shot by an Israeli soldier. These two fathers who met through the Parents Circle Families Forum (a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization of 700 bereaved family members) are uniquely qualified to talk about these issues. Rami and Bassam are also the subjects of Colum McCann’s epic novel ‘Apeirogan’.

Marina Cantacuzino

Founder, The Forgiveness Project

In 2003, in response to the invasion of Iraq, Marina embarked on a personal project collecting stories of people who had lived through trauma and injustice, and sought forgiveness rather than revenge. As a result she founded The Forgiveness Project and started speaking widely about forgiveness and restorative storytelling.

Marina is also an author and broadcaster and host of The Forgiveness Project’s The F Word Podcast. Her books include The Forgiveness Project: Stories for a vengeful age, Forgiveness is Really Strange, and Forgiveness: An Exploration.

Bassam Aramin

Parents Circle Families Forum

Bassam Aramin became involved in the Palestinian struggle as a boy growing up in the ancient city of Hebron. At 17, he was caught planning an attack on Israeli troops and spent the next seven years in prison.

In 2005, Bassam co-founded Combatants for Peace, an organisation of former Israeli and Palestinian combatants leading a non-violent struggle against the occupation. Since then, he has remained a peace activist – even when, two years later, his ten-year-old daughter Abir was gunned down and killed by an Israeli soldier.

Rami Elhanan

Parents Circle Families Forum

Rami Elhanan is a 7th generation Jerusalemite. He identifies himself as a Jew, an Israeli, and before everything else a human being. On the first day of the school year in 1997, Rami’s daughter, Smadar, was killed by two Palestinian suicide bombers who murdered 5 people that day. Soon after, Rami joined the Parents Circle, and speaks before Israeli, Palestinian and International audiences.
