Growing up Palestinian in the Age of The Wall
Joachim Ladefoged / VII for TIME

One Boy's Story
Ramzi Thaer Rafik, 15, has not met many Israelis. He says he spoke to one once, five years ago. "I was 10 years old, but I remember it very well," he says. The Israeli was a soldier, and he demanded to know why the young Palestinian was going from one end of his village to the other. Ramzi answered that he was on his way to school.
