Children of Gaza An eye witness account
This event is intended to complement the current exhibition of children's drawing from Gaza.
Eva Bartlett is a Canadian who in her work with ISM (International Solidarity Movement) has seen Gaza and its children as perhaps few westerners have. She arrived a month before Operation Cast Lead was launched with all its horrific consequences and saw first-hand the victims, 313 of whom were children. Eva spent a total of 2 years in Gaza living with families in urban and rural areas, in refugee camps, by the sea, and near the "green line" with Israel. She has a unique vantage point and a gift for sharing her experiences and insights.
For this event Eva will focus on the children of Gaza. Through the many photographs she took during here stay we get to meet them in good and in bad times. We get to share the many instances of courage and hope in the lives of the children of Gaza.
