Description - Witness in Palestine by Anna Baltzer

Anna Baltzer, a young Jewish American, went to the West Bank to discover the realities of daily life for Palestinians under the occupation. What she found would change her outlook on the conflict forever. She wrote this book to give voice to the stories of the people who welcomed her with open arms as their lives crumbled around them.For five months, Baltzer lived and worked with farmers, Palestinian and Israeli activists,and the families of political prisoners, traveling with them across endless checkpoints androadblocks to reach hospitals, universities, and olive groves. Baltzer witnessed firsthandthe environmental devastation brought on by expanding settlements and outposts and thedestruction wrought by Israel's "Security Fence," which separates many families from each other, their communities, their land, and basic human services. What emerges from Baltzer's journal is not a sensationalist tale of suicide bombers and conspiracies, but a compelling and inspiring description of the trials of daily life under the occupation.
