The Exiled Palestinians: Stateless Palestinians from the Refugee
Camps in Lebanon tell their stories

Tuesday, May 31, 2016
909 12th St. Sacramento

FMI: 916-873-6619

On May 14, 1948, as Zionist leader David Ben Gurion was proclaiming a Jewish
state in Palestine, his troops drove out the inhabitants of the ancient
Palestinian town of al-Zeeb. Eighteen year-old Mariam Fathalla was one of
them. Now 86 years old, Mariam has spent the last 68 years in crowded,
makeshift refugee camps in Lebanon. She has raised three generations, all
waiting to return to Palestine. Israel does not allow them to visit their
homes, much less live there. She and a younger Palestinian refugee will
share their experiences of exile and hopes for return.
