Aida Camp

Come hear about this bilingual storybook made by children of Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem, The West Bank!

With Professor Amahl Bishara

Middle Eastern Reception & Light refreshments will be served.

Children of Aida Refugee Camp at Lajee Center made this bilingual storybook. It is for people of all ages (5-105) to learn about everyday life in a Palestinian refugee camp. You will pick up some Arabic, too!

Copies are $20, bulk rates available. Also available is The Boy and the Wall (2005, $15), a bilingual children’s book about how a young boy dreams of resisting the wall that oppresses his community every day, and how his mother supports his dreams for freedom and his imagination. Both books feature collage art made collectively by children at Lajee Center.

For more information, email Amahl Bishara at

All proceeds benefit Lajee Center,

Thank you for your support of our work!
