Three of the four collaborating to stop the organ harvesting in Israel met again in San Francisco.
The American presentation of Donald Boström:
Donald Boström is a Swedish journalist known for his writings and photography on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
He collaborated with Professor Scheper-Hughes, US, Professor Emeritus Meira Weiss, Israel, and the director at the Israel National Forensic Institute, Chen Kugel, Israel, in a reform of Israel’s National Forensic Institute with respect to the treatment of dead bodies, including the bodies of Palestinians.
He is the author of Inshallah (English edition, 2012) a powerful and harrowing collection of stories and photos with essays by prominent writers on refugees, settlers, Intifada-activists, Yasser Arafat, and the city of Jerusalem, a city of strong and unforgiving emotions. In the new English edition, Scheper-Hughes and Boström unite in trying to answer the burning question that exploded worldwide in 2009: Did Israel illegally harvest organs from Palestinians?
