A set of 8 'tourist' postcards' which fold and unfold. Olive Trees explores the singular importance of the olive tree in Palestinian life and culture. Over the years, the Israeli Army and extremist settlers have deliberately stolen, cut down, burned and destroyed the olive trees of Palestinian farmers, some of them hundreds of years old. This was done to destroy their culture, their livelihood and to make way for settlements and settler only roads, without compensation or regard for the lives of Palestinians. Over the years hundreds of thousands of olive trees have been destroyed or removed.
This set and "Abu Ghneim becomes Har Homa" are each available for $5.00 separately—or together for $8.00 (click here!).
