The 1948 Palestine War is known to Israelis as "The War of Independence." But for Palestinians, the war is forever the Nakba, the "catastrophe." This book focuses on Palestinian internal refugees in Israel and internally displaced Palestinians across the Green Line. It uses oral history and interviews to examine Palestinian identity and memory, indigenous rights, international protection, the "right of return," and a just solution in Palestine/Israel.
