Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories by Anna Baltzer
In 2003, Anna Baltzer, a young Jewish-American, visited the West Bank to discover for herself the realities of everyday life for Palestinians living under Israeli occupation. What she found would change her outlook on the conflict forever. Through an insider's personal discoveries, extensive interviews, and comprehensive documentation, Witness in Palestine reveals details about checkpoints, settlements, land confiscation, the Wall, and the countless everyday acts of Palestinian nonviolent resistance that remain largely ignored by mainstream Western media. Baltzer's probing and honest examination of the Occupation and the pervasive spirit of nonviolence offers a fresh look at Palestine today.
