Israel/Palestine

Zochrot (“Remembering”) seeks to raise public awareness of the Palestinian Nakba, especially among Jews in Israel, who bear a special responsibility to remember and amend the legacy of 1948. The principal victims of the Nakba were the Palestinians, especially the refugees, who lost their entire world. But Jews in Israel also pay a price for their conquest of the land in 1948, living in constant fear and without hope.

This video represents just one of many actions taking place to educate Israelis and commemorate the Nakba this season. Check out their calendar for May.

Thank you Zochrot, moral giants.
