‘NIGHT IN GAZA: A DOCTOR’S JOURNEY’, featuring Dr. Mads Gilbert  

Friday, October 7th – Reception at 6:00, Presentation at 7:00pm

at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 14311 Wells Port Drive, Austin

 Dr. Mads Gilbert is a Norwegian doctor and head of Emergency Medicine at the University of North Norway. Dr. Gilbert dropped everything and rushed to Gaza in the midst of its assault by Israel and worked alongside Palestinian doctors around the clock to treat the injured. He did this in 2006, ’08, ’11, and ’14, until he was permanently banned from entering by Israel, which described his work as a threat to its security! In this presentation he shares his experiences on the front lines of war, shares stories about Palestinian resilience and lessons he’s learnt from his colleagues and his patients, and concludes with the role of the global community and our responsibility to push for peace with justice.

The reception features Middle Eastern appetizers, Palestinian sage tea and book signing.
