In Service to the Movement

Abstract


In the pre-dawn hours of March 25, Mila Windsari Affendi, a 15-year-old maid from Indonesia working in the home of a prominent Gaza attorney, climbed the stairs of her employer’s four-story residence, unlatched a window, and perched her small, shaking body on the frame. While the three young children she cared for slept soundly, Mila clutched her handbag and flung herself off the ledge.
