Nathan Thrall: Anatomy of a Tragedy image

In 2012, a horrific bus crash on the outskirts of Jerusalem killed many Palestinian schoolchildren. One of them was five-year-old Milad Salama and, in tracing his father Abed’s efforts to find his son, journalist Nathan Thrall tells the story of lives under Occupation in the West Bank. Hear Thrall talking about his 2024 Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction-winning work, A Day in the Life of Abed Salama: an urgent, essential portrait of life and death in Israel and Palestine. Chaired by Esa Aldegheri.
