A young, idealistic college student, Rachel Corrie traveled to Gaza in 2003 to protest the violence between Israel and Palestine. Working with the International Solidarity Movement, she acted as a human shield in efforts to protect Palestinian homes from Israeli bulldozers. Her tragic death occurred only months after her arrival in the region, as she was crushed while trying to stop a bulldozer from destroying another home. The situation surrounding her death was immediately controversial--was Rachel a naive political pawn, or was she simply someone who believed in helping other people?
