Washington Peace Center event next week!

The Washington Peace Center presents...

To Know The Other:
The Human Face of Palestine


Thursday, November 29th, 2007
7:00pm
Martin Luther King Memorial Library
901 G Street, NW
Washington, D.C.

Nora Buch, a local DC teacher, returned to Washington, DC from Palestine where she taught English at Al Quds University in the West Bank. She lived with Palestinians in the village of Abu Dees where the university is located. Abu Dees was a part of Jerusalem before the construction of the Separation (Apartheid) Wall. During her time in Palestine her understanding of this region deepened. Nora will share her experiences living and working with Palestinians through an interactive presentation with the audience.

This event will mark the commitment by The Washington Peace Center for at least one year, November 29, 2007 to November 29, 2008, to commemorate Al-Nakba, the catastrophe of Palestinian ethnic cleansing and dispossession. This commitment will also involve organizing and supporting events and activities concerning peace with justice in The Middle East.

Please join us in this work!
