Robert Shetterly to Unveil Portrait of Author-Activist

 

Alice Rothchild, physician, author, activist, and filmmaker, will be in Maine for the unveiling of her portrait by Rob Shetterly at 7pm, Sunday evening, December 7th, at the Blue Hill Library in Blue Hill.  Dr. Rothchild will become the latest of over 200 prominent citizens whom Maine’s celebrated artist has selected for his gallery of “Americans Who Tell the Truth”.  

Following Mr. Shetterly’s introduction, Rothchild will speak of her life’s journey and how it has shaped her perspectives on the Israel/Palestine conflict.  As she writes in her book, On the Brink, a compilation of first-person experiences in Gaza and the West Bank, Rothchild was, “born in Boston and grew up in a Jewish family with a deep love of Israel and a profound understanding of the horrors of the Holocaust.”  Through her student years in the 60’s and 70’s she developed an interest in progressive politics, beginning with the campus opposition to the Vietnam War and continuing with a commitment to the feminist and health reform movements while in medical school and through her residency in obstetrics.  

Since 1997, a focus on understanding Israel and its relationship to U.S. foreign policy has led to her leading delegations to Israel and Palestine.  She co-founded and co-chairs American Jews for a Just Peace Boston and co-organizes the AJJP Health and Human Rights Project and is on the coordinating committee of Jewish Voice for Peace Boston.

Dr. Rothchild also has written Broken Promises, Broken Dreams: Stories of Jewish and Palestinian Trauma and Resilience and directed and produced the documentary film, Voices Across the Divide, an exploration of the Israeli/Palestinian dynamic and personal histories of those who live it.

A Q and A session will follow Dr. Rothchild’s presentation.  For information regarding other appearances in Maine by Dr. Rothchild see alicerothchild.org <http://alicerothchild.org/>.
