Adania Shibli and Lone Kühlmann will talk about Shibli’s personal experiences as a Palestinian writer, about which she also writes in her essay Little Girls of Jenin:

‘I try to imagine the ground I’ll be walking on. The only time I was in the camp, the ground consisted of rubble. I remember the shoes I wore during that visit in the spring of 2002. I hate those shoes immensely. After that visit I threw them away, together with all the destruction they stepped on.’
