palestinian-prisoner-day

A mural in Gaza City commemorating Palestinian prisoners day (Eóin Murray)

occupation-prisoners

A mural in Gaza that depicts scenes of horror and despair intimately wrapped up in the issue of the occupation and that of prisoners (Eóin Murray)

These murals most likely aren’t new, but they nevertheless seem to evoke very similar impressions and feelings arising when looking at pictures from the other holocaust, the one in which millions of Jews died. This time though Jews are the perpetrators, the KZ (concentration camp) guards, the executioners.
