Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after the establishment of Israel. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined local Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly established State of Israel. The Nakba (Arabic = catastrophe) refers to the establishment of Israel, and the subsequent defeat in the war, including the killing and displacement of Arab civilians that occurred during the war.
Visual: A drawing is shown of an elderly woman embracing a man wearing a keffiyeh (Arab headdress); the man is carrying a small child, who is holding a key symbolizing “the right of return” of the Palestinian refugees. The child is raising his hand while making a “V” for victory with his fingers. Video is shown of the hand of an elderly man passing some keys symbolizing “the right of return” to the hand of a child. Images are shown of the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City and the Dome of the Rock.
