We Need to Talk: Peacebuilders Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin in Conversation with Michaela Kalowski

Both Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan have lost children to violence in the conflict between Palestine and Israel. Aramin is a Palestinian academic who spent seven years in an Israeli jail for his role in the Palestinian resistance. Elhanan is an Israeli graphic designer who served in the Israeli Army as a young man.

On the first day of the school year in 1997, Elhanan's daughter, Smadar, was killed by two Palestinian suicide bombers. In 2007, Aramin's 10-year-old daughter, Abir, was killed by Israeli border police in front of her school. United by this shared grief, Aramin and Elhanan's supported each other in healing from unimaginable loss. Their moving story has been shared around the world and was the inspiration for Colum McCann's Booker-Prize-longlisted novel Apeirogon.

For the first time, the pair will appear together in Australia in conversation with Michaela Kalowksi. Join Bassam Aramin and Rami Elhanan as they share their powerful story of loss, personal empathy, and peace.
