I came across this piece that Dr. Eyad El-Sarraj wrote in 2009 about his step-daughter.
I met Dr. El-Sarraj five years earlier when a friend and I visited Gaza to present the Doctor with an international award. Israel would not allow this esteemed psychologist to leave Gaza in order to travel to Australia to accept the award in person.
I remember asking myself “why?” back then. I guess the title of my new blog is appropriate.
