“One Day in Prison Feels Like a Year”: 2003 Testimonies from Formerly Incarcerated Palestinian Children

The testimonies document violent mistreatment of Palestinian children. The report also observes the psychological effects of this mistreatment on the children, including difficulty studying and engaging in casual social interactions.
