The Trinity of Fundamentals is Rafeedie’s fictionalized account of his nine years spent in hiding from the Occupation in Palestine, which ended in his capture by the Israeli occupation army in 1991. Rafeedie wrote The Trinity of Fundamentals during his imprisonment at Naqab Prison in 1993. The text has since been liberated from the confines of Zionist prison walls, and is used for study by both current and former political prisoners across Palestine. Now, it’s been translated into English by the PYM’s political education committee, the Popular University.
At the book launch, we will be joined in conversation with the author and guest speaker, Wisam Rafeedie, a former Palestinian political prisoner, who is a retired researcher and lecturer formerly at the Department of Social Sciences at Betlehem University, Palestine.
