Breaking the Silence – a dramatization

An offstage Voice begins the play It’s What We Do by Pam Nice, prompting each of three Israeli soldiers to tell their stories of military actions in the occupied territories, actions they personally witnessed and participated in, actions that changed them immensely.  Inspired to write her play, It’s What We Do, Nice used testimonies collected by Breaking the Silence, an organization founded in 2004 to give voice to the experiences of veteran Israeli soldiers. The play was first performed onstage in 2015. A video of the play was released in January 2018 and is now posted on youtube, enabling audiences around the world to gain a better understanding of the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
