Children of the Nakba


For Palestinians, the events between 1947-1949 are remembered as a time when Israeli military forces destroyed over 500 Palestinian villages and expelled between 700,000 and 900,000 Palestinians from their lands—about 85 percent of the Palestinian population at that time. These 4 refugees have lived exiled from their land since then. Today Palestinians represent one-third of the global refugees and internally displace population. Learn about the Palestinians who call these events the "Nakba," an Arabic word meaning "catastrophe." Both Palestinians and Israelis are children of the Nakba, heirs to a story of dispossession. Building a shared future of justice, equality, and reconciliation for both peoples will mean grappling with this history.
