Episode Summary

This Is Not Your War
The poignant testimony of Lynn Gras, an American nurse volunteer, who was giving training in neonatal intensive care in Palestinian hospitals under siege during the Israeli attacks on Gaza and Ramallah in May of 2003, forms the basis for this documentary. She describes the impact of the occupation on the physical and mental health of the Palestinian population, and the staff at the hospitals that she visited. We follow Lynn as she travels through the occupied territories, negotiating checkpoints and encountering many dangers along the way. A brief history of the region is interwoven with the narrative.moreless
