The Norwegian doctor Mads Gilbert and author Åsne Seierstad will participate at our benefit performance in Bergen on March 10.
Åsne Seierstad is a journalist and an author whose bestseller The Bookseller in Kabul was widely translated. She has previously covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Mr. Gilbert found himself in the world’s limelight when he was at an emergency assignment for the Norwegian Aid Committee at the al-Shifa Hospital during the recent conflict in Gaza, and became a spokesperson for the media whose journalists were unable to enter Gaza.
