For the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza, the Six Day War 1967 was just the beginning of a long military occupation that has dominated their lives ever since. In June 1967, the people of Abu Dis, Palestine, found themselves in the front line of the 1967 war, and this book of oral history contains people's memories of their responses as the war started and their families' movements in its immediate aftermath. These memories are contrasted to memories of the same period by people from Camden, London, including an Israeli woman, now living in Camden, who in 1967 who was called into the Israeli Reserve Army. There are also explanations from Abu Dis of the context of 1967 and the effects of the war on the lives of ordinary people in Abu Dis.
