I took a picture of a poster that is displayed in our Journalism School hall. I don’t want to say much about this picture. Why should I it will never help this poor woman. Just imagine this woman is your mother or sister who is been harassed on street in such a derogatory way.
Below is the original picture from The New York Times.
The picture was taken on Shuhada Street in Hebron. As Ms. Castelnuovo recalled it:
The streets were mostly empty. I stopped to photograph some settlers marking the Jewish holiday of Purim. They were passing around a bottle of wine, toasting the holiday, nothing out of the ordinary. I noticed a Palestinian woman walking along the shut-down stores. A group of settlers were walking in the middle of the street in the opposite direction when one of them took a step towards her. I instinctually raised the camera.
She didn’t scream or stop, she hurried up the street and vanished around the corner. I was left angered and saddened — as if the wine hit me.
*Purim is a Jewish festival that commemorates a time when the Jewish people living in Persia were saved from extermination.
