From the book cover:

The building of the Wall in the Rachel’s Tomb area in Bethlehem was like the blow of a hammer to local society. The area, previously one of the liveliest in Bethlehem, became desolate. People, shops and businesses left the area. There was no way of working, now way of raising children in the shadow of the Wall. As a sign of solidarity with the Palestinian people, international visitors and members of pilgrimage groups adopted a presence by the Wall. On a colorless wall of heavy grey concrete slabs measuring more than eight meters high – a wall that obscures earth and sky – people created graffiti, poetry and drawings.

How to create hope in a desperate situation? How to create new life? AEI-Open Windows decided to create a Peace House to help re-energize the area. We named it the Sumud Peace House because sumud stands for steadfastness and resilience. A peace house in a dead zone needs sources of inspiration. The present book was designed to provide such inspiration. We called in a range of scholars and activists to contribute their reflections toward compiling this book. The common denominator of their contributions is reflected in the title and subtitle of this book: Challenging the Wall: Toward a Pedagogy of Hope.

The aims of this book are double: the book searches for inspirational ways to challenge the Wall and at the same time considers how such ways can serve as a pedagogy of hope. A rich yield of approaches, conceptualizations, case studies, comparisons, and stories is complemented by a series of interviews about the suffering of the Palestinian people and, most importantly, shows the sources of hope and energy
