This session will examine the long-standing Palestinian heritage in Palestine, along with a look at the creation of political Zionism, its impact on Palestine in 1948 and its implications for today. We'll hear from a Nakba survivor, a man directly impacted by Zionism's ethnic cleansing. Through this session, we'll come away with a deeper understanding of the forces at work behind Palestinian dispossession and the erasure of Palestinian and Muslim history and heritage, with the forward-looking objective of learning how to reclaim our narrative as we work for justice in Palestine.
