The Nakba and its Generational Impact on Palestinian lives: Memory, Identity, and a Future rooted in Justice
Cosponsored with Project48: The Nakba, the displacement of over 750,000 Palestinians from their homeland from 1947-49, is among the root causes of the conflict in Palestine-Israel and critical to understanding the failure of the decades-long “peace-process,” and the level of justice and reparation required to achieve a sustainable future. We will hear the personal stories of those who survived the ethnic cleansing of their cities and villages, and learn from them and their descendents how the trauma of the Nakba and Israel’s ongoing policies of erasure have shaped their lives. We’ll also ask about their visions for the future, what justice looks like, and how they sustain connections to their homeland from the diaspora.
Join FMEP non-resident fellow Peter Beinart in conversation with Nakba survivors and their descendants: Nida El-Muti, Dina El-Muti, and Hasan Hammami.
