Destruction of a synagogue

Editor and Publisher Photo of the Year:

Palestinian boys watch as men stand on the roof of the remains of a synagogue at the Netzarim settlement in the Gaza Strip on Sept. 12, 2005, following the Israeli withdrawal.

...Di Lauro tells E&P that he stood in front of the synagogue "for hours" on Sept. 12, capturing the destruction of the building by Palestinians after Israeli settlers in Gaza were ordered out of the area by their government. "I like to shoot a lot of images," he says. Thankfully, he reports, the boys in the photo didn't notice him taking the picture; if they had, they probably would have mugged for the camera. While taking this image, Di Lauro wondered, "What could the boys be thinking, looking up at their friends and neighbors?"

What were they thinking? Yippe hooray!
