My Son Tom : The Life and Tragic Death of Tom Hurndal Paperback


In April 2003, twenty-one-year-old English photojournalism student Tom Hurndall was shot in the head as he was rescuing a Palestinian child in the town of Rafah in the Gaza Strip.

Here is Tom's mother's account of his courageous quest, its tragic end and a devastated family's struggle for justice in a case that made legal history.

It is an elegy for a son, full of loss but also of hope.

Written with honesty, dignity and insight, this moving story of a remarkable young man, a mother's love, and a devoted family gives a human face to a conflict that, directly and indirectly, affects us all.
