The Middle East - week one
ALICE ROTHCHILD, M.D.
"Israel & Palestine: Broken Promises, Broken Dreams"

Alice Rothchild has been an obstetrician-gynecologist with Harvard Vanguard
Medical Associates for some 20 years and is an assistant professor of obstetrics, gynecology & reproductive biology at Harvard Medical School. Long active with underserved populations and social justice organizations, she joined the Alliance to Defend Health Care in 1997 and served several years as its board president. Alice also turned much attention to understanding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and its relationship to U.S. foreign policy and American Jewry. She co-founded & co-chairs Visions of Peace with Justice in Israel/Palestine (now Jewish Voice for Peace, Boston) and co-organized the Jewish American Medical Project (now the JVP Health & Human Rights Project).

Alice has chronicled her participation on recent medical delegations in Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish & Palestinian Trauma and Resistance (Univ. of Michigan, 2007). It powerfully depicts--and she will share--realities beyond the geopolitical ones which confront Israelis & Palestinians. Her book has been widely praised for its depiction of the human face of a tragic situation and for its ethical observations.
