This story is a non-fiction novel of contemporary events. It is about a girl, one of over 1,000,000 Palestinian children trapped as prisoners in the military Occupied Territories of Gaza and the West Bank, and her struggle for food, electricity, education… and freedom. The short, but disturbing, fact-based narrative is based on official Israeli policies, secret police tactics, real-life events, and authentic episodes experienced by actual people.

With fascinating and informative interviews throughout the narrative, Dalia explains the oppression and obstacles she and her little brother endure, and their efforts to become educated, under Israeli military rule. Disturbing details are revealed about the thousands of Palestinian children physically harmed, killed, arrested, and imprisoned — including a special Israeli military court for children. The interviews of Dalia are conducted by three composite journalists, from the US, the UK, and Israel, who provide an ongoing analysis and fascinating new insights of the biblical history, philosophy, and policies of the military theocracy of Israel.

Copies of Prisoners of History: The Story of Dalia, a Palestinian will be available for purchase at the event.
