About this item

One hundred thousand Palestinians fled to Syria after being expelled from Palestine upon the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948. Integrating into society over time, their experience stands in stark contrast to the plight of Palestinian refugees in other Arab countries. Syria's Palestinians as a result held a different conception of the 1948 Nakba, or catastrophe, in popular memory. Based on interviews with first-, second-, and third-generation members of Syria's Palestinian community, this book challenges the nationalist and patriotic idea of the Nakba's memory as static and universally shared. Following the evolution of the Nakba in Syria and its transformation in the country's Palestinian politics, this study sheds light on the enduring relevance of the Nakba among the communities it helped create, as well as its changing meaning in light of the Syrian war.
