Samira 40 is a doctor practicing in the Palestinian city of Bethlehem. She has very fond memories of her years as a medical student in Jordan. Although she finds it hard to talk about it now Samira explains how she spend eight years of her life in an Israeli prison for opposing the Israeli occupation. Her husband was also imprisoned for ten years. Samira saddens as she recalls the soldiers of the IDF destroying her house in the middle of the night and taking them both away. They leaved in a refugee camp at the time. Samira’s mother raised her five children during her long imprisonment.
