The Ongoing Nakba at People’s History Museum (PHM), City Centre, 8 March 2018 - Visit now

Nakba Day (or ‘the day of catastrophe’ in Arabic) is marked on 15 May each year by Palestinians around the world. It commemorates the 1948 Palestinian Exodus, during which more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes following the Israeli Declaration of Independence. The status of Palestinian refugees and, in particular, whether Israel will grant them their claimed right to return to their homes or be compensated, remains one of the key issues in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict today.

As part of Wonder Women 2018, the People’s History Museum presents The Ongoing Nakba; an afternoon of stories by Palestinian refugee women talking about the 1948 exodus, and a moving visual installation that considers the ongoing plight of female refugees from Palestine and the rest of the world.

The Ongoing Nakba promises to be a very moving occasion, drawing attention to the plight and resilience of women refugees around the world.
