Notes A Day in Gaza (narration only)

After the Six Day War, Israel took over the governing of the Gaza Strip from the previously occupier, Egypt. Interviews with the Israeli administrators discuss the corruption of the Egyptian overseers. The Palestinians are pleased with the change. The orange groves in Gaza should produce an excellent crop now that the area is under the rule of the Israelis. The schools were being prepared for reopening, the only apparent problem being that the pre-existing furniture of the schools had either been burned by the departing Egyptians or looted by the Palestinians. UNRRA has been helping to supply aid to the refugees. Things in Gaza look hopeful, but there will be much work to do.
