Amos Oz presents prize to Breaking the Silence – Ilana Curiel – Ynetnews 07.11.16
In a ceremony at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Breaking the Silence was awarded an alternative cash prize after being denied the Berelson Prize in memory of Yitzhak Rabin. ‘Sometimes in history, those who were dubbed traitors are in time shown to be trailblazers,’ said Oz when presenting the prize. ‘I want our adversaries to ponder that moral force is not a luxury but an existential matter. I would like to tell our adversaries in the country that one of the few reasons to feel good as Israelis is that there is still freedom of speech and freedom of the press and that there are organisations such as Breaking the Silence and B’Tselem and Peace Now.’
