Poetic Obituaries: The 21-year-old [Andrew Pochter] went to Egypt

this year after spending time in Morocco and falling in love with the region.
Before the trip, he interned for AMIDEAST, an American nonprofit that focuses on the Middle East and North Africa. He also took a class in regional politics.

While enrolled in the class, he read poems about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to his girlfriend, said his mother, Elizabeth Pochter.
