As I’m getting ready to leave, I’m reading the graphic novel (actually graphic photo-journalism book) FOOTNOTES IN GAZA, written and illustrated by Joe Sacco. There’s an interesting review of the book in this Sunday’s New York Times. It vividly illustrates (literally) two Israeli massacres in Gaza in 1956. One (as far as I have read as of this posting) documents the Khan Younis massacre vividly, humanly, giving voice to the victims and the survivors. Little known to the world, these events are foundational to understanding the current situation in Gaza and Palestine, the nature of Israel and its backers.
