In 2013, Holot was inaugurated as an open-air detention facility for asylum seekers in Israel. Osman Ali, a young man from Darfur, is featured in a 12-minute Amnesty International film entitled “Holot—The Assault on Human Dignity” where he gives a firsthand account of his experiences. Please join us for a screening of the film to learn more about the people affected by the detention system in Israel. We will hear directly from Ali via Skype and find out how he is working to change the system in the face of challenging circumstances.
