In “Life in Occupied Palestine”, Anna Baltzer, a graduate of Columbia University and the Jewish-American granddaughter of Holocaust refugees, documents her experience as a volunteer with the International Women’s Peace Service in the West Bank. Baltzer provides a straightforward account of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, while chronicling the almost unbearable living conditions of Palestinians under the Occupation. This film provides an accessible introduction to a difficult subject.
Please join us for a free showing of the film followed by a Q&A discussion moderated by Dr. Mayda Topoushian, Assistant Professor of International Studies, VCU.
