We met the remarkable Ana Michele last summer at the Holy Land Trust‘s month long Iktashef Experience, based in Bethlehem, in the West Bank of Palestine. Ana Michele went to Israel and Palestine to find out for herself about the conflict because she had been inspired by a college professor that told a different side of the conflict, not widely known in the US.

In this 25 minute interview, Ana Michele tells us about the transformation she experienced in Palestine that led her to help with the founding of the Museum of the Palestinian People in Washington, DC. If after hearing her inspiring stories about the Tent of Nations farm near Bethlehem and a heartwarming encounter with a Palestinian family she met in a refugee camp near Bethlehem, you may want to donate to the museum (Click Here). As mentioned in the program, there is a survey being taken by the museum to help them with ideas to eductate the public about Palestinians. (Click Here)
