Since 2002, the Nakba Archive has recorded over 450 eyewitness testimonies with Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon. This screening consists of a selection of interviews taken from this growing resource. The collection of interviews reconstructs through personal memories the social, cultural and political life in Palestine prior to 1948, and documents the events that led up to the expulsions. These powerful materials combine to offer a unique audiovisual record for scholars, researchers, and campaigners working in this field, as well as a historical and political resource for future generations of Palestinians. The archive gives voices to individual histories and stands as a public act of witness to the continuing legacy of 1948.
