Description

The Al Madad Foundation has, since its inception, been involved with childcare in Palestine supporting paediatric centres and child support groups, as well as funding many media projects, including the Birzeit University Photographic department. "Silent Witnesses" brings together an international team of photographers, led by Rula Halawani, director of the Birzeit Photographic department, to create a book of over 150 photographs, alongside the reproduction of the children's artwork and their writings. The internationally renowned photographer, Stefano Massimo, has taken a portfolio of images which brilliantly augment the children's own testimonies. Children are the silent victims of war and conflict. The children of the Palestinian/Israeli struggle are no exception. No agenda or preconception weighs the editorial intention of this remarkably vibrant book. It gives a window into children's lives in Palestine five years into the new millennium; at play, at school, at home, in hospital and amongst their families. We believe it will become a testament to the condition of the children themselves and in some way, we hope, may contribute to the resolution of this long and seemingly intractable conflict.show more
