An Arabic-language production of My Name is Rachel Corrie, a play based on the writings of a young American woman killed by an Israeli bulldozer, premiered in Haifa, Israel on Sunday.
Corrie’s parents attended the performance, which took place on the fifth anniversary of her death.
“I can’t think of any more appropriate place to be… than with all of you. Even when we are back in the United States, our hearts are always very much here,” Cindy Corrie, Rachel’s mother, told the audience.
