Al Nakba (“The Catastrophe” in English), or what Israel refers to as the “War of Independence,” symbolizes the dispossession, displacement, and uprooting of more than 750,000 Palestinian men, women, and children by numerically superior Israeli forces – half before any Arab armies joined the actual war. These Palestinians were driven into 59 refugee camps hastily constructed to accommodate them by UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency).
