Palestinian refugee children’s art stolen from Honan-Allston library

International Solidarity Movement » Palestinian refugee children’s art stolen from library

On April 19, 2007, eighteen photographs were stolen from an exhibit documenting Palestinian children’s journey to Jerusalem, the sea, and their ancestral lands. The exhibit, which opened on April 14, was hanging in the Honan-Allston branch of the public library, and was scheduled to remain there until May 25.

While the thieves of the artwork are unknown, Birthright Unplugged organizers suspect that the motives were political. The Honan-Allston library confirms that this is the first time a theft of this kind has happened there, although they often display art exhibits.

  2. Reading this news gave me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. It's so upsetting (though not surprising) when stuff like this happens.
    How could someone just take down a bunch of art, and then walk-out with it without anyone noticing something odd?
    Was someone so personally offended by a display of art made by Palestinian refugee children at our library that they had to steal it?!!??
    Was there a great threat to someone's "American-ness" by having this art on display???!!?
