Anna Baltzer, a Jewish American Columbia graduate, Fulbright scholar and granddaughter of Holocaust refugees, will present photographs and stories from her work documenting human rights abuses and supporting nonviolent resistance in the West Bank with the International Women’s Peace Service.
Baltzer will present “LIfe in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories and Photos” from 4 to 6 p.m. April 16 in Reeve Memorial Union Theater, 748 Algoma Blvd., providing photographic documentation of the situation in the West Bank and critical information often misrepresented or ignored in the Western media. Her presentation will cover checkpoints, settlements, Israeli activism, the 1948 war and refugees, censorship, the Separation Wall, nonviolent demonstrations and other topics rarely covered in the U.S. media.
The event, sponsored by Earth Charter Oshkosh, is free and open to the public. Guests can park without a permit in parking lots 13, 15, 32 and the first level of the parking ramp between 3 and 7 p.m. April 16.
