Stories of Everyday Life from the Second Intifada by Wendy Pearlman, Rick Hale
This is the work of a young Jewish American woman who participates in free 10-day trip to Israel, then spends an additional 6 months living in the West Bank with a Palestinian woman and attending classes. Subsequently she studies Arabic at the University of Cairo and returns to the West Bank to interview Palestinians. Her 18 interviews with Palestinian individuals and families in the West Bank and Gaza are the substance of this book. Several of the interviews are with children and youth, which could be excerpted for use with youth groups. A powerful and clear introduction draws the reader into the interviews, providing succinct description of the failure of the Oslo peace process and its ramifications. All interviews were conducted in early 2001 and are very relevant today.
