Memoirs of a Stolen Land: Covering the conflict as a journalist

Ghada Ouiess, an Al-Jazeera anchorwoman, opened up about her experiences as a journalist in Palestine and as an anchorwoman in the second episode of “Memoirs of a Stolen Land.”

During this episode of Zahra Haider’s powerful and eye opening film series, Ouiess talked about how her experience covering Palestine on the ground affected her health and has stuck with her throughout her career.

Earlier in the video, Ouiess touched on how she had to put her feelings aside as a reporter and an anchorwoman, but she said doing it was “very hard and very painful.”

“It was too sentimental. When you go there and you meet people there and you hear from them the real story. When you feel the siege in Gaza…It’s different. It’s a different feeling that I can’t describe. you feel so related. ” Ouiess said at the 1:56 mark of video.

Check back soon for the third episode of “Memoirs of a Stolen Land.”

Zahra Haider, the producer of the video series, is originally from the Dallas metropolitan area.  She is now a sophomore at Northwestern University studying journalism and film. She is involved in Northwestern News Network and the Daily Northwestern.
