“Taking a cue from Albert Camus’ epistolary essay Lettres à un Ami Allemand [Letters to a German Friend], Zaatari conducts both an investigation and a tribute to an act of resistance (or forbearance) that marked his childhood memories: the refusal of an Israeli pilot to bomb a boys’ high school on June 6, 1982 in south Lebanon.” Kaelen Wilson-Goldie
