by Vittorio Arrigoni,
Introduction by Ilan Pappe.



Description :


With an introduction by world renown Israeli academic Ilan Pappe, Vittorio Arrigoni's book Gaza Stay Human vividly brings to life an eyewitness account of the 23 days of Operation Cast Lead. The bloody Israeli offensive against the Gaza strip which took place between 27th December 2008 and 18th January 2009. Vittorio's daily dispatches were written in precarious conditions, between bombing raids and intermittent internet access.


Vittorio was tragically kidnapped and murdered (allegedly by Mossad agents) in Gaza in April 2011. His words continue to inspire people around the world and his motto 'Stay Human' lives on forever.


Vittorio Arrigoni was an internationally renowned human rights activist who served as a volunteer with the pacifist International Solidarity Movement and worked closely with fishermen and farmers in Gaza. During the Israeli offensive against the Gaza Strip in 2008-9, Arrigoni acted as a human shield while working with the Palestinian Red Crescent ambulances. Working as a freelance journalist for the Italian daily Il Manifesto, Arrigoni’s daily dispatches, written between bombing raids and patchy internet access, ended with the plea, "stay human," which became the motto of the anti-Israeli peace protests in his native Italy. His authoritative and deeply moving eyewitness account was later published in 2010 in Italian, French, German, and English, which the historian Ilan Pappé described as the "account of an everyman and a true humanist." On April 14, 2011, Arrigoni was kidnapped and brutally murdered in Gaza, which caused an international outcry and was unanimously condemned by Hamas and the Palestinian National Authority.
