On Thursday, 16 October 2014 the Heinrich Böll Foundation will show “Sounds of Torture” followed by a panel discussion elaborating on the situation of refugees fleeing via the Egyptian Sinai to Israel and addressing how EU institutions or human rights organisations could contribute to a improvement of this situation.
Speakers of the panel discussion will be:
- Meron Estefanos, Eritrean-Swedish journalist and author of the study “The Human Trafficking Cycle. Sinai and Beyond”
- Maike Harel, Hotline for Refugees and Migrants, Israel
- Stefanie Ruehl, UNHCR, previously employed at AMERA Refugee Assistance, Egypt
The film screening and panel discussion, which will be held in English and translated into German, can be attended separately.
