Issue: 1999, Volume 32, Issue 2
Subject: Human Rights|Land and Homes|Refugees|War/Conflict
Author: Hamzeh-Muhaisen, Muna
Issue Description: What is it like to be on the receiving end of the longest military occupation in modern history? Muna Hamzeh-Muhaisen lived in Dheisheh, a refugee camp on the outskirts of Bethlehem, for more than a decade, including the period of the first intifada. This is her account of the people who have lived in Dheisheh all of their lives. As she notes, there is hardly a refugee in The Camp, young or old, who doesn’t remember the names of the camp’s victims and even the years of their untimely deaths.
