On May 15, Palestinians commemorate the Nakba, the catastrophe, where in 1947-48, during the establishment of Israel hundreds of thousands of Palestinians lost their homes, their land and many their lives through a deliberate ethnic cleansing plan executed by Jewish militia.
Many of those displaced Palestinians are still stateless refugees in neighboring countries living under terribly difficult circumstances. This day of remembrance helps to honor those who died and renew the commitment to continue the fight for restitution and self determination.
