For over a month, Hamas has held 240 hostages from 33 different countries, among them women, children, infants, teenagers, and seniors. This week, Jon Polin and Rachel Goldberg, the parents of 23-year-old hostage Hersh Goldberg-Polin, spent time with Yehuda Kurtzer talking about their son and their plight as parents of a hostage. In this conversation, they describe their efforts beseeching global leaders, the frustrations of indifference, the politics of fighting a war with hostages, and what we can all do to help bring Hersh and the rest of the hostages home.
