Under the patronage of the United Nation’s Messenger of Peace, HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein and HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) presented In Between Wars, an installation that provided a lens into the human cost of the ongoing Israeli occupation.
Spanning an area of over 60 square metres, the installation aimed to give viewers a historical perspective on the current occupation in modern day Palestine. By walking them through the corridors and rooms of the Palestinian people, viewers were able to virtually experience the life and suffering of those subjected to the raids, blockades, demolition and harassment imposed by the Israeli occupation. Using real-life footage, photographs, recordings and testimonies illustrated the harsh reality of Palestine’s state of affairs, the exhibition underlined a difficult reality of deprival and hardship.
In addition to the exhibition, there was a panel discussion on the life of Palestinian youths under occupation, which provided attendees with the opportunity to meet and speak with individuals who have a sound understanding of the medical and humanitarian situation in Palestine.
