"Disengaging from Gaza"

1 of 12

"Fallen Sun" As the sun sets, Jewish settlers gather together for a final evening prayer service, prior to the commencement of Israel's pullout from the Gaza Strip on August 14, 2005 in the Jewish settlement of Shirat Hayam. On August 15, 2005 the Israeli army began evacuating Israeli settlers from their homes in the Gush Katif bloc of settlements. This photo story testifies to the varied emotional landscape that was exhibited as the settler community, through tears and anguish, abandoned their homes during the Disengagement process.
