The tears of olive tree

The Tears of Olive Trees is a multi-generational non-fiction memoir of a Palestinian family’s heroic struggle against poverty, violence and oppression.

In the 1948 Nakba, the Zionists stole the AlShaikh family’s home and lands and exiled them to a refugee camp in Gaza. Rather than to return evil for evil, this incredible, heroic family struggled in peace against all odds to give their children a better life.

The Tears of Olive Trees dares to tell the truth about what really happened to the Palestinian people through the experiences of a man who lived through the events of the past fifty years first as a refugee and later as a physician and humanitarian who immigrated to the West.
