Anna Baltzer to Speak Tomorrow
Anna Baltzer, an award winning lecturer and a Jewish-American activist for Palestinian human rights, will be speaking at Penn State on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the Thomas Building.
Baltzer, who recently appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (see below), has been to over 400 places around the world with her presentation “Life in Occupied Palestine: Eyewitness Stories and Photos.” She has also written a book, entitled “Witness in Palestine: A Jewish American Woman in the Occupied Territories.”
She is the granddaughter of Holocaust refugees and is a volunteer for the International Women’s Peace Service in the West Bank. Baltzer’s work and reputation earned her the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee’s Rachel Corrie Peace and Justice award, as well as a commendation from the governor of Wisconsin.
A long-time supporter of non-violent resistance to occupation of Palestine, Batlzer is part of many groups that support peace and freedom. If the interview on The Daily Show is any indication, it should be an interesting talk about a topic that has been affecting people around the world for a very long time.
