Anna Baltzer Bio


Anna Baltzer is a Jewish-American pro-Palestinian activist, author, and public speaker who is the granddaughter of Polish-born Jewish Holocaust survivors[citation needed] and who has taken a position in opposition to some Israeli policies regarding the Palestinian territories, including but not limited to settlers, the wall, and checkpoints. Baltzer first traveled to the Middle East in 2003 while on a Fulbright grant to teach English in Ankara, Turkey. Since then, she has traveled to the West Bank as a volunteer for the International Women's Peace Service documenting human rights abuses and supporting nonviolent resistance. Her publications have documented eight months of human conditions while on assignment in the West Bank for the International Women’s Peace Service. Baltzer exhibits commendable courage in choosing to walk with Palestinians in difficult and even life-threatening situations. [1] Since the summer of 2005, she has been touring around the United States and abroad with a presentation and has written a book (Witness in Palestine) describing her personal experiences, observations, and photographs from eight months of documenting what she described as human rights violations in the West Bank. Noam Chomsky’s review of Baltzer's book states, "Even those who are familiar with the grim reality of the occupied territories will quickly be drawn into a world they had barely imagined by these vivid, searingly honest, intensely acute portrayals”,[citation needed] while Tanya Reinhart author of "Roadmap to Nowhere" call it "Moving and vivid.”[citation needed]
