Gaza´s hollidy camps

  1. 1. Tens of thousands of children from the Gaza Strip spend at least part of their holidays in special summer camps, arranged around a wide array of activities. Some, organized by the United Nations, offer sports, art and dance classes. Others, laid on by Gaza’s Islamist rulers Hamas, include fun and games, while seeking to reinforce religious values and awareness of the conflict with Israel – a nation which Hamas refuses to recognize. Other centers, including some run by Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, provide military training for youths, providing basic firearms practice, and, more controversially, war games to kidnap pretend Israeli soldiers. Photographer Mohammed Salem documented children at two of these camps. On holiday in Gaza´s summer camps Mindestens 10.000 Kinder aus dem Gaza-Streifen verbringen den letzten Teil ihrer Ferien in speziellen Sommercamps, die sowohl von der HAMAS als auch von der UN durchgeführt werden. Der Fotograf Mohammed Salem hat an zwei Kindern die Unterschiede dieser Camps mit seinen Fotos herausgearbeitet.
