One of the many faded “martyr” posters on a wall in Jenin camp. The posters are pasted on most walls in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, as a commemoration of young Palestinian suicide bombers and others who were killed. With diminished violence these days, there are fewer posters. Jenin’s Freedom Theatre and other cultural innovations demonstrate alternatives to violent conflict.

The Jenin Horse, made from the scrap of houses, cars and an ambulance destroyed in 2002 in Jenin refugee camp. The 5-meter tall construction is now a well known monument in Jenin.
The old Jenin bird, a sculpture at a roundabout leading into town and the camp. The bird, which also was known as the 'Flying Camel', was destroyed, and replaced later by a less dynamic sculpture.
