Book details

On October 7th 2023 the lives of all Israelis and all Palestinians changed forever. Hamas killed over 1200 Israelis and others, then Israel started a relentless attack on Gaza.
For three months, Israeli peace activist Dana Mills wrote near daily essays, reporting her fears, thoughts and - occasionally - hopes. She knew a number of people killed on that first day, many were fellow peace activists, and she had worked as a Jewish human rights advocate for Gazans and those living under occupation on the West Bank.
These essays are presented in their raw form, barely edited. One woman's war, written for peace.
