Sumud Story HouseThe Arab Educational Institute/Sumud Story House in Bethlehem would like to ask you to sponsor a Wall poster with a human story made by a Palestinian woman. Let us not forget that the so-much-talked-about Palestinian state is about humans!THE IDEAThe idea runs as follows: the Sumud Story House will design large posters (2 by 1 meter) which will be attached to the Wall near the Tomb of Rachel in Bethlehem. Each poster will display a brief but powerful English story-from-life, printed in large font, of a Palestinian woman in which she talks about the problems she experiences among other things as a result of the Wall, but also about her sumud or resilience. You are invited to sponsor such a poster by the amount of 100 Euro, including the costs of design, printing and fixing. The posters, each with another story, will be put next to each other on the Wall and will together form a gradually expanding “Wall Museum.” The donors’ names will be mentioned on each of the posters. Visitors of Bethlehem will be invited to visit the museum. A website will give an overview of the old and recent posters.Would you like to join this initiative or to know more, please contact Toine van Teeffelen of AEI in Bethlehem, tvant@p-ol.com with a cc to aei@p-ol.com, mentioning “Wall poster.”Arab Educational Institute, www.aeicenter.org, Bethlehem, 02-2744030.
