In his novel, Oz Shelach excavates underneath the forests to pick up remnants of the Palestinian history buried under a geography, which was forcibly reshaped. Shelach excavates the dark aspects of the institutionalised Israeli discourse, uncovering with an excessively sarcastic sense the untold story, and the techniques of concealing it in a language that unrelentingly whitewashes the product of displacement and occupation and unfolds concomitant behaviours.
Picnic Grounds: A Novel in Fragments by Oz Shelach was translated into Arabic with a commentary by Poet Abdul Rahim al-Sheikh.

The Palestinian Forum for Israeli Studies (MADAR) is an independent research centre specialising in Israeli affairs, based in Ramallah, Palestine. MADAR was established in 2000 by a group of Palestinian intellectuals and academics, including the late poet Mahmoud Darwish, Dr. Lily Feidy, Dr. Ali Jarbawi, Dr. Ahmad Harb, Mr. Walid Al-Ahmad and Mr. Akram Haniyyeh. The centre was registered as a not-for-profit organisation with the Palestinian Ministry of Interior, and obtained a research centre’s operational licensing from the Palestinian Ministry of Information.
