A Reluctant Heroine
The personal story of Dr Pauline Cutting
Just a year ago, Dr Pauline Cutting was an unknown surgeon working for a charity in the Lebanon. Then her remarkable struggle to save lives during the five-month siege of the Bourj al Barajneh
Palestinian camp pushed her into the limelight and turned her into a reluctant heroine. As a new year begins,
Dr Cutting looks back at the Middle East she knew and speaks of her hopes for the future in a seemingly hopeless situation.
