ON THIS DAY

we remember those who have fallen so that we may stand.

ON THIS DAY

we honor the sons and daughters of Israel, heroes who have
given their lives, as well as those who live on, with courage
and hope in these dark times.

ON THIS DAY

we gather in prayer for peace.

Looking through family photos with grand-
mother Irene Butter, Shirin Nazar says:
"Savta [Irene] does everything for us. She's
very special and we do appreciate her"

band deal with civil and human rights
issues. They are a part of a group
which wants to build Arab and Jewish
communities together.
• While Sadik is the first Arab to apply
for kibbutz membership where they are
currently living in the Galilee, there are
other Arabs in high positions in the
industries on the kibbutz, Pam says.
For Butter, it is her grandchildren,
and their unique position as Arabs and
Jews, that offer her hope.
She is very moved, for example,
when Amelie answers the question
about the differences between her
grandmothers. The outside world sees
many differences: one is Arab, can't
read and has 12 children; the other is
an American Jew and an economics
professor.
Amelie replies, "They're very similar.
They always need to take care of us,
and they're very loving, very giving,
always giving us food."
"My granddaughters are quite
unique," says Butter. "They have rich
lives, living in three cultures and
absorbing them; they're not on the
periphery. We have hopes that they will
be able to contribute to the healing of
the wounds between Arabs and Jews. I
wish to live long enough to see them
evolve and see in what ways they will
show and express their upbringing."
It's an incredible dream for a
Holocaust survivor who has seen some
of the worst evils of humanity — risk-
ing so much of the peace she has
struggled to find in her life for a
dream of an even greater peace. El
