Breaking The Silence

Breaking the Silence is an organization of veteran combatants who have served in the Israeli military since the start of the Second Intifada and have taken it upon themselves to expose the Israeli public to the reality of everyday life in the Occupied Territories. They endeavor to stimulate public debate about the price paid for a reality in which young soldiers face a civilian population on a daily basis, and are engaged in the control of that population’s everyday life.

So you can participate in a bustour with this former soldiers into the occupied territories to get some explanations about the situation in Hebron or into the South Hebron Hills.

I attended this organisation and followed them on differnet trips into the Occupied Territories on assignment for ZEIT-MAGAZIN.
