Lost in the chaos of Israel’s war against Palestine are the voices of the ordinary Palestinians who are its primary victims. This book puts a dent in that injustice by preserving oral testimonies collected and translated by the Sumud Story House project of Bethlehem’s Arab Educational Institute.
Despite their brevity — each oral history occupies a single page in this book — they convey the fears, the hopes, the resolve, the humanity of people under brutal military occupation, and their unwavering determination to realize a better future for their children.
