Emily Henochowicz, the 21-year-old Cooper Union student whose left eye was destroyed by Israeli soldiers in Palestine yesterday during a protest of the flotilla raid, has a blog. You will see that she is a person of great imagination. On her "about" page appears this image
and the words, "A visual adventure!" Let’s look for important expressions from Henochowicz down the road.
Cooper Union has issued a completely safe/noncommital statement on the matter. Notice the scaly evasion, "a tear gas canister hit her in the face." Oh, and a bullet paralyzed Dean Kahler.
On May 31st, Emily Henochowicz a junior student in the School of Art who is currently studying at Bezalel Academy of Arts & Design in Jerusalem, was seriously wounded suffering the loss of her left eye. The injury occurred while
Emily was taking part in a demonstration at Qalandiya checkpoint when a tear gas canister hit her in the face. Emily is currently being treated in Hadassah Hospital. Yael Vishnizki Levi, who was on exchange at the School of Art at Cooper Union in Fall 2009, has been constantly with Emily. Emily’s father, Stuart Henochowicz MD, is now at her bedside.
The Cooper Union community expresses our concern and support for Emily. Our thoughts and prayers are with Emily and her family as she recovers from this devastating injury.
