Nazareth: The city that survived the Nakba

11 December 2017 18:30 to 20:00

15 Mount of Olives Road, Sheikh Jarrah

In the wake of the Nakba, and the destruction of much of Palestinian society and its major cities, Nazareth remained almost intact. As the dust of the war settled, this heretofore small town turned into the only Palestinian city to survive the events of 1948, and became the cultural and political centre for the Palestinians that remained as a minority in the new self-identified Jewish state. In this lecture, Dr Leena Dallasheh (Humboldt State University, California), traces how the city survived and persevered, despite immense challenges.

Please see the attached flyer for more information about the event and speaker. All are welcome.

This is a joint event between the Kenyon Institute, the Educational Bookshop, and Dar al-Tifel al-Arabi. It will take place at Dar Isaaf Nashashibi in Sheikh Jarrah (above Gallery Café).
