More than 60 babies were killed during the last Intifada in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority territories. “My daughter was born on the day the Intifada set off. When she turned six months old an Israeli baby was shot in the head; a month later a Palestinian baby was shot. This for me was intolerable, ” says Adi Arbel.

11 Israeli and Palestinian mothers describe in a heartbreaking way the essence of motherhood that had taken a fatal blow, and the unbearable pain caused by the killing of children in the region. Intimate confessions turn into one conversation about motherhood, bereavement and new pregnancies. A rare insight into private loss and bereavement amid violent political conflict.
