In summer 1973, Zeinab was one of around 750,000 people from around the world to take part in the huge 10th World Youth Festival in East Berlin, then part of the socialist German Democratic Republic. During this “amazing exchange of ideas and thoughts,” Zeinab performed at huge revolutionary concerts and was part of a popular, 150-strong Palestinian delegation. Struggles to liberate Palestine and Vietnam were given central importance. Zeinab “loved the opportunity to be in that tenth World Youth Festival… I sang on stages there singing Write Down, I’m an Arab, and some other songs.” She’d also go on to perform in the Soviet Union.
