Nakba Remembrance

The 11th Annual Nakba Remembrance in Northfield took place on May 11, 2024. This year  the Nakba was followed by a Mothers March. Northfielders for Justice in Palestine/Israel organized the event. Darlene Cox is a long time attender. 

Nakba remembers the catastrophe of 1948 when Israel ethnically cleansed half of the Palestinian population and demolished half of their villages and towns. During the ceremony  the villages are named in Arabic,  a bell is rung, and a small Palestinian flag is placed on the large map in the location of the villages. It is a moving experience. It was my third Nakba. There were many more people at this year's event.
