Virtual Gaza is a website where ordinary Palestinians under siege can describe their experiences in their own words, and where the destruction can be documented by those experiencing it directly. It was created as a response to the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip in January 2009.
How might communities use it?
It can be used by other communities to document crises, tell stories, and share experiences with other contributors and the world. It is designed to aggregate stories by neighborhood, using local geography as a guide.
