9780930852474: Life in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories & Photos

A wonderfully moving introduction to the plight of the Palestinians, in simple, everyday terms, with a captivating narration by eyewitness Anna Baltzer. Baltzer, a Jewish-American Columbia graduate and Fulbright scholar, presents her discoveries as a volunteer with the International Women's Peace Service in the West Bank, documenting human rights abuses and supporting Palestinian-led nonviolent resistance to the Occupation. Baltzer's presentation provides those interested in the issue with critical information and documentation that can be difficult to obtain through mainstream media sources, and to encourage informed action. Topics include checkpoints, settlements, Israeli activism, Zionism, 1948 War & refugees, censorship, the Wall, and environmental devastation. The granddaughter of Holocaust refugees, Baltzer works to address the injustices of today in light of those of the past. She is author of the book Witness in Palestine.

Review:

Anna Baltzer's presentation is the single most informative, educational, objective and professional piece of collective insight on the issue. As an American citizen who has lived in the United States for almost the last 20 years, and as somebody who grew up in Palestine and who could relate to everything in Baltzer's presentation, I feel this is exactly the kind of information and presentation the average American person needs to hear and see. --Radwan, Palestinian in Austin, Texas

Anna Baltzer's pictures, eloquence, and brilliantly penetrating presentation speak for themselves. No convincing is necessary; just bearing witness was a life-changing event for me --Karen in Boulder, Colorado
