Part of the highly acclaimed Voices of Witness oral history series, Palestine Speaks is essential reading for anyone who wants to better understand the Israel–Palestine crisis.
“Palestine Speaks demonstrates that nothing is more eloquent than the voices of those who endure and try valiantly to survive. Nothing is more important for us than to listen to them carefully, to grasp their suffering, to learn from their testimonies about them and about ourselves, and to use this understanding to bring their tragedy to an end.”
“Palestine Speaks – a collection of testimonials from Palestinians narrating their own experiences, their own suffering, is a rare and courageous book.”
“A stunning, essential, and heartbreaking book that puts a profoundly human face on the suffering of the Palestinian people.”
“In a time when history is told in cheap television re-enactments, if at all, and personal tragedy is gobbled up in rapidly digestible magazine photos and reality shows, this project goes against the grain.”
“Superb ... The voices of these ordinary individuals speak here with unsettling eloquence.”
