Wall of Names

As the massacre of Gaza reached its tenth day we began laying out the names of the dead, their ages, and the locations in which they were attacked.

We consulted information registered by the Gaza Health Ministry (who risk their lives to make this record possible) and compiled by Al-Akhbar English and Al Jazeera English.

We are trying to keep pace with the names as they are released, but the list grows before cartridge ink has dried on the page.

The document we are using is available for public viewing, downloading, and printing. We are updating it as often as we can.
