An Unhealed Wound: Sabra-Shatila at 40

September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

We are pleased to invite you to an important event honoring the tragic massacre of Palestinians and poor Lebanese civilians in Beirut’s Sabra and Shatila Refugee camps. The evening will feature testimony from nurse Ellen Siegel who was serving in the hospital adjacent to the camps; a Palestinian survivor of the massacre: Nabil Mohamed, vice president, ADC; and Rev. Don Wagner, who entered the camps a day after the massacre and details his experience in his just released memoir: Glory to God in the Lowest, which will be available for purchase at the event. Local activist and poet Zeina Azzam who has visited the camps will read poetry. Phyllis Bennis, noted author, activist, and senior analyst with the Institute for Policy Studies, will moderate the evening.

Please join us to mark this important 40-year memorial. We will never forget Sabra and Shatila. We will not rest until justice is done in Palestine and its refugees return.

This event is co-sponsored by: Jewish Voice for Peace (DC Chapter); American Muslims for Palestine; American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee; Palestinian Christian Alliance for Peace; Museum of the Palestinian People; Friends of Sabeel– North America; Virginia Coalition for Human Rights; Busboys and Poets; Interlink Publishing Group, Inc.
