Remember Us carries a collection of stories and narratives, a project initiated by one of the editors, Husna Musa, after her return from Gaza early 2013, as a member of the friendship committee of Viva Palestina Malaysia, she emotionally embraced the stories of her Palestinian friends to share it with young readers from around the world.
Remember Us will bring us through a journey we have never been through before. The honest expression of hopes, fear, anger, dreams, frustrations, aspirations and desires reflect that the ones who are living under oppression and continuous intimidation by their occupiers are simply people who yearn for a peaceful life.
Through their lyrical contributions, readers learn to view Palestinians not as victims or "superhuman" impervious to whatever life throws at them, but as human beings capable of love, fear, anger, sorrow, and deserves freedom as well as justice.
