Palestinian Children Sing for Holocaust Survivors

The Palestinian children of a West Bank refugee camp sang for a group of Holocaust survivors. I ran across this article on (as usual) just after we discussed the article in class regarding terrorism.

Both groups, Israelis and Palestinians, have suffered atrocities throughout time that have left them scarred in one form or anther. As we know, there is a lot of history between the two groups.

HOLON, Israel – The Palestinian youths from the tough West Bank refugee camp stood facing the elderly Holocaust survivors Wednesday, appearing somewhat defiant in a teenage sort of way. Then they began to sing

Yet each experienced a peaceful event with one another.

“Only people who have been through suffering understand each other,” 

(Ali Zeid, an 18-year-old keyboard player)
