Americans for Peace Now, the Foundation for Middle East Peace & Brit Tzedek V'Shalom presented this program held on Monday, February 11, 2008, 12:00-1:30 p.m., at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Washington, D.C.


Breaking the Silence is an organization of Israeli soldiers whose mission is to give public witness to the impact of military service in the West Bank and Gaza on Israeli society. Through testimony and photographs, the soldiers focus on the moral cost of Israel's occupation to both the Palestinian and Israeli peoples.

Yehuda Shaul is an orthodox Israeli whose experience with the IDF throughout the West Bank, and in particular in Hebron, led to his founding of Breaking the Silence and the launching of the group's first photo exhibition in 2004. Since then, Shaul and Breaking the Silence have collected over 500 testimonies from current and former IDF soldiers and worked extensively to focus attention on the difficult situation in Hebron.

Shaul will give a short briefing on the work of Breaking the Silence and present a computerized version of the photo exhibition that the group is bringing to Philadelphia and Cambridge/Boston during February and March.
