*AL-NAKBA means catastrophe in Arabic. Throughout the Arab world

the word is used to refer to the devastation of Palestinian society

and the dispossession of the Palestinian people resulting from the

ethnic cleansing conducted by Zionist forces during 1947-48.

 

NAKBA DAY, the most important date on the Palestinian calendar, is

observed throughout the world on May 15th. It is a time to learn about the

history of Palestine and Palestinians, and to remember the tragedy inflicted

on the Palestinian people in 1947-48, which has yet to be rectified.

Nakba Day is also an occasion to celebrate the continued vitality

of Palestinian culture in the face of continuing hardships, and to

reaffirm Palestinian aspirations for peace and self-determination.
