NOW AVAILABLE: Updated Book Documenting Israeli and Palestinian Children Killed Since September 2000
Washington, D.C. April 23, 2006—Between Sept. 30, 2000 and March 27, 2007, more than 1,045 Israeli and Palestinian children under the age of 18 have been killed in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. Remember These Children, a publication of the American Educational Trust, Americans for Middle East Understanding, Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, and the Parents Circle—Bereaved Families Forum, documents each of these deaths. Arranged chronologically by date of death, each entry includes the child’s name, age, hometown, how the child was killed and, where available, the nature of the fatal injury. Though painful to complete and read, the documentation conveys the personal reality behind these terrible statistics. The waste of human life—of hope and future promise—is almost too great to contemplate.
Its publishers hope that the third edition of Remember These Children, demonstrating as it does the conflict’s continuing and painful toll on innocent lives, will encourage a renewed determination to put an end to the violence of occupation.
