Reconciliation rather than revenge in Israel / Palestine: Parents Circle Families Forum

Peace Award Winner 2003, categorie "Exemplary Organisation"

Parents Circle is a union of Palestinian and Israeli parents who have lost their children to the violent conflicts in the Middle East.

The members are united in grief and use various activities to make the public in the Middle East sympathetic towards a just peace agreement between Israel und Palestine.

Parents Circle advocates conflicting parties coming to understandings and political compromises that are more tolerable than further acts of violence. They consider the shock they all experienced at the fate of their deceased children as particular legitimation to convince the public of the absurdity of further bloodshed and to make clear that there are, after all, people in the enemy camps who both are in mourning and have fears but are also ready for reconciliation.
