Reporting from Ramallah: An Israeli Journalist in an Occupied Land

Reporting from Ramallah: An Israeli Journalist in an Occupied Land

Author(s): Amira Hass

Location(s): Ramallah

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

The writings of an Israeli journalist who has chosen to live in a Palestinian town in order to provide a firsthand description of what daily life is like for the population. The only Israelis this generation of Palestinians know are soldiers and settlers. For them, Israel is no more than a subsidiary of an army that knows no limits and settlements that know no borders. Recipient of the UNESCO Guillermo Camo World Press Freedom Prize in 2003, Amira Hass is the only Jewish Israeli correspondent on Palestinian affairs to live among the people about whom she reports. The child of Holocaust survivors, Hass prefers the title “expert in Israeli occupation,” and, as such, is relentless in her quest for both truth and justice.
