Travel writer Peter Mortimer reports on Shatila, the Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon – scene of the Shatila massacre of 1982, now home to about 12,000 people living in one square kilometre. The author developed a children’s theatre group in the camp, whose members will be visiting the UK around publication.
Shatila is a Palestinian refugee camp in outer Beirut, home to 17,000
people existing in an area the size of a cricket field, and the scene of
the Shatila massacre when up to 3,000 were killed. This book documents
Peter Mortimer's time on camp, including setting up a children's theatre
group which travelled to Britain for the book's publicaiton. With
humour and insight, he details the day-to-day problems facing a
Westerner far removed from his comfort zone.
