The Palestinian Nakba: The resolve of memoryBy RAMZY BAROUD
The Arab News: May 15, 2012- http://arabnews.com/%
Many Palestinians remember and reference Al-Nakba, also known as the Catastrophe, on May 15 every year. The event marks the expulsion of nearly a million Palestinians, while their villages were destroyed.
The destruction of Palestine in 1947-48 ushered in the birth of Israel. Older generations relay the harsh and oppressive memory of their collective experience to younger Palestinians, many of whom live their own Nakbas today.
