Overview

The 9 to 14 year old children who made these drawings have things in common with children everywhere. They want what all children want: education, family, security, peace, predictability. Their drawings offer us a glimpse into how and what children subjected to conflict are thinking. Some children depict the future with peaceful scenes, others pockmark their illustrations with scenes of war and disaster. However, it is the words of the children that is most amazing. The simple words that accompany the illustrations of the Israeli and Palestinian children echo each other; revealing the tensions and hopes that are part of their every day lives.
