Hila Fakliro

“One of the things I remember most is the feeling of loneliness. That no one will help me.”

Hila Fakliro, 26 years old from Tel Aviv, was a bartender at Nova Festival.

She remembers “crowds of people fleeing, running over each other, being shot and dropping to the floor” and was sure that she too was heading toward her death. Later she discovered that she lost six friends and three more were kidnapped. Hila talks about why she watched the most difficult videos of the Nova festival and why is she sure that she will recover and be back like her old self.
