Holocaust survivor assaulted because of her work for Palestinians

Posted on July 24, 2009


At 85 Hedy Epstein, a survivor of the 2nd WW has never stopped in her fight for Peace and Human Rights for all people – as she says in this interview – “not only for jewish people”.

“The Free Gaza video is an interview with a great woman, Hedy Epstein, just turned 85. She has dedicated her life to working for peace and human rights. In June she was going to sail to Gaza with the other 21 volunteers on board the Spirit of Humanity. But she was attacked just days before she was to leave for Cyprus. She was walking home, when she was thrown on the ground, cutting both knees and gashing her chin. She talks to us from her home in St. Louis, Missouri. Here is her interview and why she believes she must continue to advocate for justice for Palestine. ”     www.freegaza.org
