Writings on the Wall : Palestinians tell in their own words of life under Israeli apartheid

Suarez, Thomas More by this author...£10.00

The voices of ordinary civilians experiencing the effects of war are often lost in the cacophony of claim and counterclaim by parties in a conflict. This book preserves the testimonies of ordinary Palestinians pasted up on the bare concrete of Israel's illegal Wall, which is designed to disrupt Palestinian lives and appropriate Palestinian land. They have been collected and translated by the Sumud Story House project of Bethlehem's Arab Educational Institute. Each oral history occupies a single page, yet each conveys the fears, the hopes, the resolve, the humanity of Palestinians under a brutal military occupation, and their unwavering determination to realise a better future for their children.
