“Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa had a colossal impact on me. It’s an extremely vividly-told tale of a Palestinian family through the generations, told through the eyes of Amal. Starting from her grandparents’ memories of life in Ein Hod village before the Nakba, Amal takes you on a journey through growing up in Jenin refugee camp, of her life in America isolated from Palestine, the resistance in Lebanon and eventually returning to Palestine, all through a series of earth-shattering events. You are journeyed through three generations of Palestinian history in a painstaking and beautifully told way. Even though I was of course already aware of events like al-Nakba and Sabra and Shatila, reading this book made me feel them in an entirely new way. ”  — Natasha, Media and Communications Officer.
