BIRZEIT UNIVERSITY - Reflections from Palestine

Reflections from Palestine tells the story of life under occupation. It is a story that Khoury¸ who celebrated her 80th birthday on the day of the book launch, has told for many years. The book opens at the outset of 1967 "Six-Day War" and describes the relentless series of temporary measures that became the binding, suffocating reality of occupation following the Oslo Accords.

 

Khoury explains the wide-ranging social and political problems facing Palestinians through the sweet and sorrowful experiences of family and community life under occupation.

 

Khoury has been an active community volunteer worker throughout most of her life. She is a founding member of the Board of Trustees of Birzeit University and Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Centre. She earned recognition from local NGOs and a citation of merit award from the alumni association of Southwestern University.

 

She was married to the late Yousef Khoury who passed away in 2004, and lives in East Jerusalem close to her two children Dina and Suhail, and her seven grandchildren.
