About this blog

For three months in 2013 I served as a Human Rights Observer in the occupied Palestinian territory.  I lived and worked in Hebron, in the West Bank, which is one of the most tense places in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  My duties included accompanying vulnerable Palestinian children to school, sometimes in the face of violence; monitoring checkpoints which thousands of Palestinian workers have to cross each morning; and supporting Israelis and Palestinians working together for peace and human rights.

This blog tells the stories of some of the people I met and the things I witnessed during my time there.
