In 1948, Zionist militias expelled over 700,000 Palestinians from their villages and towns. The event, and the ongoing destruction and occupation of Palestine are referred to as the Nakba – the catastrophe. How did the events of 1948 shape Palestine and its diaspora? And generations later, how are Palestineans fighting to return home?
On this edition of Making Contact we reflect on the Nakba, the Naksa, and the future of Palestine.
