Remembering al Nakba


The 1948 Palestinian exodus (Arabic: الهجرة الفلسطينية‎, al-Hijra al-Filasteeniya), referred to by Palestinians as al Nakba (Arabic: النكبة‎), meaning the “disaster”, “catastrophe”, or “cataclysm”, was the creation of the Palestinian refugee problem during and after the 1948 Palestine war.

During the war, between 700,000 and 750,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from the territories that were later known as Israel in 1949. They were not allowed to go back to their home after the war and became refugees.
