Remembrance of Nakba


Friday, May 18th on the Woodstock Village Green. Remembrance of Nakba: The Catastrophe that Continues for the Palestinian People.

In human terms, 1948 saw the mass deportation of a million Palestinians from their homes, massacres of civilians, and the razing to the ground of hundreds of Palestinian villages. The apartheid system that followed has destroyed any hope of peace for both Israelis and Palestinians. We grieve for these tragedies, while working for the day when Israelis and Palestinians can once again share the land of their ancestors.
