GAZA, Punishing the Innocent

Gaza, Punishing the Innocent is a collection of 40 lino-cuts engraved by Sam Kerson and originally printed by Katah at her Atelier du Livre in Quebec.

The images have been created over the years, as historical incidents inspired the artist to create them. Sam Kerson was actively involved in the Six Day War, as a sailor in the US Sixth Fleet, and since then has felt compelled to follow the latest developments in this ongoing series of violent encounters between the Palestinians and the Israelis.

The images presented in this book were started during the Hanukkah assault on Gaza, December 2008 to January 2009, and have been developed over the last 15 years.

The publication of the book was precipitated by the latest assault  on Gaza, which started in October 2023.   

More recently we decided to image the “Innocents”. During this recent and worst conflict we have concentrated on images of children, mothers, and people engaged in peaceful practices such as planting trees.

We hope this book might be useful to those of you working for and calling for peace.
