What You'll Get


What compels people to do horrible things? Some of the world's worst wars and atrocities take place in Africa and the Middle East, and Matti Friedman and Philip Gourevitch shed light on the heart of the bloodshed. Former Jerusalem bureau reporter and winner of the Sami Rohr Prize for Jewish Literature, Friedman discusses his book Pumpkinflowers, a harrowing account of being an Israeli soldier defending a hilltop amidst hostile territory in Lebanon. Gourevitch of The New Yorker joins him to discuss his book We Wish To Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families, an in-depth account of Rwandan genocide and winner of the National Critics Circle Award for Nonfiction. The Jewish Community Center of San Francisco hosts this lecture that challenges the audience to peer into the darkest corners of humanity, what we're capable of and what we can do to change things for the better.
