Palestinian-American journalist, author, and former Al-Jazeera producer
As part of a UK-wide tour, Ramzy Baroud will introduce his moving memoir “My Father was a Freedom Fighter – Gaza’s Untoled Story”, which explores the daily lives of the complex human beings — revolutionaries, mothers and fathers, lovers, and comedians — who make Gaza so much more than just a disputed territory.Â At the heart of this poignant tale is the courageous story of his valiant father, who, driven out of his village to a refugee camp, took up arms to fight the Occupation, while trying to raise a family.
“This is a very fine book: both a loving tribute to the author’s father, and the struggle and pain of Palestine, seen through the witness and insights of two generations. Â Together, they beckon freedom.”
– John Pilger, award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker.Details
