'Gabi Baramki's tireless devotion to Birzeit University has allowed the institution to survive and even thrive against incredible odds' -- President Jimmy Carter, from the Foreword
'A tribute to the humanity of Palestinians, individually and collectively, who have managed to prevail under the most dehumanising conditions of the Israeli military occupation. An authentic and powerful act of affirmation' -- Dr Hanan Ashrawi
'Told with humanity, dignity and humour, Birzeit's personal story is a beacon of hope in a troubled world' -- Sir Michael Francis Atiyah, OM, FRS, FRSE
An inspiring account' -- Paolo Cotta-Ramusino Secretary General of Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs
