|Another Side of Peace
Ellen Frick and Gretchen Burger
Roni Hirshenzon has suffered as much as any parent can imagine. Both of his sons are dead; each died at 19 as a direct result of the violence between Israelis and Palestinians. A co-founder of the Parents Circle, Roni works with both Israeli and Palestinian bereaved families to reach reconciliation. In this film he is joined by Ghazi Briegieth, a Palestinian electrician whose 31-year old brother was killed at a checkpoint in 2000. Together, they work to widen the circle of peace.
