Black & White from Palestine - Palestine 2003
My first trip to Palestine took place in July 2002, about 10 months after the beginning of the Second Intifada.
It lasted two weeks within which I visited the majority of the Occupied Territories.
Starting from Jerusalem (Est-palestinian part and West-israelian part); Ramallah and Jenin (both in the West Bank), and ending by Gaza, Khan Younis and Rafah (the Gaza Strip).
The second trip took place in November 2002 and lasted also two weeks. That time I principally stayed in
Khan Younis, leaving with one family in a refugee camp. My last trip started in April 2003. I could stay only for three months, after which the Israeli army was causing me a lot of trouble while I was trying to leave the Gaza Strip.
During my last trip I spent most of the time in the Gaza Strip. With the exception of first few days, spend in Jerusalem.
I was working voluntary at the Remedial Education Centre, based in a refugee camp in Jabalia (north of the Gaza Strip).
The centre was organising therapy, educational, social and artistic activities for children with behaviour problems caused by violent context they were living in.
