Watch Al-Nakba: The Palestinian catastrophe – in Honor of Darlene Wallach

When: Saturday, July 14 2018 @ 07:00 PM - - 10:00PM
Where: San Jose Peace & Justice Center
47 South 7th Street
San Jose, CA 95112
Description: Come watch a few episodes of the documentary series, Al-Nakba: The Palestinian Catastrophe, a film by Rawan Damen, published by Al Jazeera. The documentary is 4 episodes, each Episode is over 47 minutes long. So unless people want to stay and watch all 4 episodes, we will only watch 2 or 3 episodes.

Here is a brief description of the film:

"The Nakba did not begin in 1948. Its origins lie over two centuries ago…."

So begins this four-part series on the 'nakba', meaning the 'catastrophe', about the history of the Palestinian expulsions from their homeland and the illegal establishment of the state of Israel.

This sweeping history starts back in 1799 with Napoleon's attempted advance into Palestine to check British expansion and his appeal to the Jews of the world to establish a Jewish only State in league with France.

The narrative moves through the 19th century and into the 20th century with the British Mandate in Palestine and comes right up to date in the 21st century and the ongoing 'nakba' on the ground.

Arab, Israeli and Western intellectuals, historians and eye-witnesses provide the central narrative which is accompanied by archive material and documents, many only recently released for the first time.

7:00pm – 10:00pm, or later if enough people want to stay and watch all 4 episodes.
