How a sixth grader from Sderot draws the war

The Great Flood Collective (Hamabul), a community organization that seeks to use art in dealing with social and political issues, did a comics workshop for kids in Sderot who spent most of the summer holiday in bomb shelters. “We feared that the poisonous atmosphere will be visible in the drawings,” the activists wrote on Hamabul Facebook’s page, “but what turned out was the opposite.”

This is a drawing by Ohad, 11 years old:
