On July 7, 2014, Israel launched a series of aerial attacks on Gaza, followed by the ground phase of the operation ten days later. Mads Gilbert arrived in Gaza on July 13th and worked day and night for the next two weeks at al-Shifa Hospital, dealing with casualties, repairing serious injuries, and trying to save lives. While helping the wounded, Dr. Mads Gilbert kept a camera in the pocket of his scrubs, enabling him to document some of the human cost paid by the Palestinian people for enduring the Israeli invasion. Night in Gaza is the photo story you will not see on television or in the newspapers. It is also a tribute to the courage, endurance, and almost inconceivably strong spirit of Palestinian health workers and volunteers, a spirit replicated throughout the severely tested society of Gaza.

Dr. Mads Gilbert is a medical doctor at the University Hospital of North Norway. Since 1981, he has been going regularly to Palestine as a teacher and emergency care doctor in Palestinian hospitals on behalf of UNWRA, the UN aid agency to Palestinian refugees. Over the last few years he has worked in Gaza during successive waves of Israeli attacks on the densely populated area under siege. He is co-author (with Erik Fosse) of Eyes in Gaza, which was hailed by the influential Norwegian newspaper Klassekampen as the “Best Book of 2009.”

Copies of Night in Gaza will be available for purchase.
