Nasser: "My parents are back home. The house is clean. We replaced the broken windows with plastic sheets. Parts of the house are burnt so we will have to fix this somehow. We still sleep in two safe rooms just in case something happens, but we can go out and work.

"I saw the Gaza Strip being destroyed, and when I worked with the company that makes documentaries I felt I had a huge responsibility. I was not doing a mere job. My responsibility was to show the world what happened. I realized that life does not stop; people do not die. Life is not about a house that was damaged. It is beyond all these materialistic things. The war showed the hatred and the spite that both sides feel. The chances for peace are fewer."
