Monday 6 February was dedicated to Palestine at Cairo International Book Fair.

The day started with a series of lectures on Palestine launched by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture.

The Palestinian book section at the book fair showed solidarity with Gaza by printing out photos and mini-biographies of the children martyred in Gaza as we speak.

The Abbad El-Shams Choir, part of the  Palestinian Women Coalition in Cairo, ended the afternoon with enchanting traditional Palestinian songs.
