Father of Ahmed Khatib awarded Peace Prize 2010 of State of Hessen / Germany
You probably have heard the story of Ismael Khatib, the father whose 8 year old son Ahmed Khatib was shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Jenin / Palestine because they mistook his plastic toy gun for a real weapon.
After there was no more hope for Ahmed his father Ismael agreed to donate Ahmeds organs for other children to help save their lives. Among them were a Jewish Orthodox girl.
For this Ismael Kahatib was awarded the peace prize of the State of Hessen in Germany in 2010.
Leon Geller and Marcus Vetter have made a moving film about this incident and how Ismael Khatib visited the children whose lives could be saved by the organs of his son.
This film is now available in German and French on arte-tv
A lot of tht dialogues are in Arabic so it may be interesting to Arabic audience also.
The film moved me very much because it showed the dimensions of the Israeli / Palestine conflict from both sides and how a father walks the way of peace instead of revenge.
