1948: Creation & Catastrophe


1948 was a pivotal year for both the Palestinian people and the Jewish population living in British Mandatory Palestine. Israel’s declaration of independence in May 1948 was inextricably bound up with the dispossession and displacement of about 750,000 Palestinians, an event more commonly known as the Nakba (“catastrophe” in Arabic).

NASIM and Humanity 4 Palestine will be screening the documentary “1948: Creation & Catastrophe” (released in 2018) which centers on both Israeli and Palestinian firsthand witness accounts of these events while a handful of prominent experts in the field such as Ilan Pappé, Benny Morris and Nur Masalha provide context from both sides of history.

After the screening we will be joined by Eitan Bronstein Aparicio for an interview about his newest book “Nakba in Hebrew – A Political Journey” and visibility of narrative in a highly political climate. The book (released only in Hebrew and French for now) deals primarily with the transformation of Nakba discourse in 21st century Israel.

Eitan Bronstein Aparicio (b. 1960) is an Israeli historian and was one of the founders of the Israeli organization Zochrot in 2002. Now he leads the Israeli organization De-Colonizer focused on promoting Nakba awareness in Jewish Israeli society. This event will be moderated by Anas Kababo.
