Released hostage Sahar Calderon, 16, whose father Ofer Calderon remains in Hamas captivity, breaks down as she talks about her experiences in captivity in Gaza.

“Do you know what it’s like to be there for even a day? Not even a day, one hour is hell,” she says during a press conference with four other women released from captivity during a weeklong truce in late November.

“I was there for 52 days,” she continues through tears. “Why did I, a 16-year-old girl, need to go through all of that? Why did I need to be in that place for 2 months?”

“Correct, I am alive and breathing but my soul was murdered. And everyone who is still there is murdered anew each day,” she adds.
