Part 1 of a 4-part film series examining "Palestine Under Occupation"
Eyewitness stories/photographs by Anna Baltzar.
“Like many Americans and many Jews, I grew up with a positive view of Israel as a peace-seeking democracy. In 2003, during a backpacking trip through the Middle East, I began to meet Palestinian refugees from 1948. I didn’t know who the Palestinians were, or where Palestine was, and through my new acquaintances I began to hear a narrative about the history and present of Israel/Palestine that was entirely different from the one I had learned growing up in the United States.” –Anna Baltzar
