Dear Palestinians Everywhere,
Palestinian Author, historian and Journalist, Dr. Ramzy Baroud is leading a group of researchers and journalists to help write his new book about the people of Palestine. The idea behind the book is to bridge politics, ideology, religion and geography to look at Palestinian history, past and present in a way that would answer some important questions pertaining to Palestinian unity, identity and nationhood.
The project aims to challenge the traditional understanding of Palestinian history which often views Palestinians based on fixed historical junctures, regional divisions or factional leanings, among other aspects.
Instead, the goal is to show Palestinians as they are, as ordinary and extraordinary people that lead interesting and often incredible lives. This will be the anchor upon which historical narrative is collected, analysed and presented.
To make this project truly representative of Palestinian reality, Palestinians everywhere must be reached out to, and therefore people can participate in one of two different ways:
Share their own stories
Or collect stories from those who, for whatever reason, don’t have access to online technology or social media.
At the end, the project hopes to present Palestine and the Palestinians through Palestinians themselves.
