Rachel
Corrie
(1979-2003) was an activist and diarist,
part of the pro-Palestinian group International Solidarity Movement. She was
killed in the Gaza Strip, at the age of only 23, while trying to block an
Israeli bulldozer from destroying Palestinian houses.

She became a committed peace activist from
a young age, starting out as a volunteer with the Washington State Conservation

Human Rights Watch called for an investigation, but the Israeli government
denied any wrongdoing.
