On March 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, a twenty-three- year-old American, was killed by an Israeli bulldozer in the Gaza Strip as she was trying to prevent the demolition of the Palestinian homes. My Name is Rachel Corrie is composed from Rachel’s own journals, letters, and e-mails-creating a portrait of a messy, skinny, articulate, Salvador Dalí-loving chain-smoker (with a passion for the music of Pat Benatar), who left home and school in Olympia, Washington, to support Palestinian non-violent resistance to Israel’s military occupation.
