Dr. Rothchild will provide a personal exploration of the ancient city of Jerusalem, with a special focus on East Jerusalem and the surrounding areas of greater Jerusalem, which have experienced decades of “Judaization” and erasure of the Palestinian presence. What are the costs of these policies, not only to Palestinians, but also to Jewish Israelis? How is this a mirror of the ongoing occupation of Palestine? What can we learn and what can we do?
Alice Rothchild is a physician, author, and filmmaker who, since 1997, has focused much of her interest on human rights and social justice surrounding the Israel/Palestine conflict. She practiced Obstetrics & Gynecology for almost 40 years and, and was Assistant Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Harvard Medical School until 2014. Dr. Rothchild writes and lectures widely, is the author of Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience; On the Brink: Israel and Palestine on the Eve of the 2014 Gaza Invasion; and Condition Critical: Life and Death in Israel/Palestine, and directed the award-winning documentary film, Voices Across the Divide. She is also on the board of the We Are Not Numbers program in Gaza and the Gaza Mental Health Foundation, and on the steering committee of the Jewish Voice for Peace Health Advisory Council.
