Description

"Our story is how an ordinary good boy encounters the circumstances in Hebron and what he does there. Wanting people to understand what the occupation is beyond newspaper headlines, we want to reflect it through a soldier's eyes: how your senses are gradually dulled, how you cross red lines, what the moral cost is. The soldiers in OUR HARSH LOGIC have gone on the record with their personal experiences to break what they call a conspiracy of silence across Israeli society and to fulfill a moral obligation. Speaking with undeniable authority, they have made a supremely significant contribution to one of the world’s most vexed and intractable conflicts."

About the Lecturer: Yehuda Shaul, Executive director of Breaking the Silence, one of Israel’s internationally lauded NGOs
