Join PCFF’s international spokespeople and bereaved members, Robi Damelin and Bassam Aramin as they share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation. Participate in a discussion on the human side of the conflict and why relationship building, mutual understanding of the “other side” and a reconciliation framework is necessary for any sustainable peace agreement.
Robi Damelin is the Israeli spokesperson of the Parents Circle. Her son. David, was killed by a Palestinian sniper in 2002 while guarding a checkpoint near a settlement during his army reserve service. Robi speaks to Israeli, Palestinian and
international audiences all over the world to demand that reconciliation be a
part of any peace agreement. Robi was named a 2015 Woman of Impact by Women in the World. In 2014, Robi was selected by the Joan B. Kroc
Institute for Peace and Justice as one of four Women PeaceMakers. She is the protagonist featured in the documentary, One Day after Peace.
