Suad Amiry traces the lives of individual members of Palestinian families and, through them, the histories of both Palestine and the migrant Palestinian community in other countries of the Middle East.

Golda slept here juxtaposes serial bombardments and personal tragedies; evokes the sights and smells of Palestinian architecture and food; and weaves for us the tapestry that is the Palestinian reality, caught between official histories and private memories.

Through poetry and prose, monologue and dialogue, we glimpse the lost Palestinian landscape, obscured by the silent battle between remembering and forgetting.
