“LIFE IN OCCUPIED PALESTINE”

“Life in Occupied Palestine” is the eyewitness photos and stories by Anna Baltzer who spent several months in Palestine. Because Ms. Baltzer is a Jewish American, she was able to freely move in both Jewish and Palestinian areas during her stay there. She has recorded stories of the effect of the settlements, the wall (or fence), check points, settler¹s roads, etc. on the Palestinian people. It gives a clear picture of what occupation really is and the effect on both the occupied and the occupiers. It is an insight into the Israeli/Palestine situation that most people do not have access to and would not otherwise see.

 

 

Filmmaker Anna Baltzer will be our special guest for the community discussion following the film and will be happy to answer any questions you may have after seeing it .

    “Because Ms. Baltzer is a Jewish American, she was able to freely move in both Jewish and Palestinian areas during her stay there.”

    What “Jewish” areas was she able to visit as a jewish american that she would not have been able to visit as a christian, Budhist, or muslim american?

    I highly doubt that she was able to move more freely in palestinian areas as a consequence of her Jewishness.

    The above quote implies that non-jewish Americans are banned from area’s in Israel because of their religions. This is simply not true.

    Anna Baltzer’s Jewishness did not get her into areas that a non-Jew could not have gained access to, and implying such is missleading.
