HEDY EPSTEIN - 90 year old Holocaust survivor speaks of her 5 attempts to help bring aid to the people of Gaza who are being massacred by the Israeli government.  Hedy speaks about what it means to be Jewish in America and support Palestine, while Jews in the USA are taught that Israel is an ally of the United States while it practices apartheid against the Palestinians.  Hedy has survived a bloody personal assault and is still harassed because she dares to place human rights first ahead of hatred and government agendas.
