How Far, How Near. Social consequences of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict
Partycja Sasnal's talk with Konstanty Gebert
Patrycja Sasnal's conversation with Konstanty Gebert is the next event in the cycle organized by the Museum in cooperation with the Institute of Advanced Studies.
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the longest ongoing conflict in the world: it started nearly 70 years ago, claiming over 100,000 victims. After a quarter of a century of peace talks, the sides are further from peace than they were when the negotiations started. Since the establishment of the Israeli state and the awakening of the Palestinian identity, the conflict has spread, rooting itself in the minds of the Israeli and the Palestinians, later deforming and as such, perpetrating the youngest generations in both nations.
Those who remember the times of peace and the first formative armed conflicts of 1948, 1956, or even the dominant 1967 war, pass on. Younger Israelis and Palestinians, brought up in fear and humiliation, remain. The influence of the 70 years of conflict on both nations and their subsequent generations, and the direction of the changes is the theme of the talk between Patrycja Sasnal and Konstanty Gebert.
