Woman (from Beit Jala) interviewed by Sajeda Abed al-Salam on 19 November 2006.
She discusses the following: her mother told her how devastating the locust plague was and how they consumed all of the crops; most of the men went to work in the army; Ottomans used to cut the olive trees to take for fuel wood for the trains; high levels of starvation; when the British took over they were initially well received but the relationship later turned sour.
