Rebecca Wittler's son was kidnapped and murdered by Hamas 14 years ago. Now the Essex-based British artist is to exhibit her work for the first time in England on the anniversary of his death - albeit coincidentally.
Arik Frankenthal died in 1994, aged 19, after he was abducted and then killed by Hamas activists. His father, and Ms Wittler's ex-husband, Yitzhak Frankenthal, subsequently founded the Bereaved Families' Forum, an organisation of Israeli and Palestinian parents who have lost children to terrorism.
