The University of Saskatchewan's Humanities Research Unit (HRU) will be hosting Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East's (CJPME) Human Drama in Gaza photo exhibition.
CJPME and the HRU invite Saskatonians to view the exhibition and learn more about the Gaza situation. "The suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza during the Israeli onslaught, and the increasing misery brought on by Israel's blockade of Gaza are issues that should concern all Canadians," adds Woodley. The exhibition has been seen by thousands in Montreal, Lévis, Ottawa, Toronto, Yellowknife, Hamilton, London and Edmonton.
The Exposition features 44 visually gripping and haunting photos taken by professional photojournalists from Israel, Palestine, and the West during Israel's 22-day assault on Gaza two winters ago. It sheds light on the human impact of the assault, in which over 1400 Palestinians-the majority of them civilians-and 13 Israelis were killed.
The exhibition is complemented by public discussions and film screenings that will enrich viewers' understanding of the exhibition and the circumstances that generated it.
