Today is the 58th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakbeh.
I could have pasted a history lesson, or shared the stories of others as I have none, but then I decided that I will be more personal, perhaps a little too personal, with a little family history.
These portraits of my family’s pre-1948 life in Palestine.
My paternal grandparents (coincedentally, his too)
Today, my mother’s family, Dallal, is scattered between Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the US. My great-grandfather is buried in Jeddah, and my grandparents are buried in Amman.
Most of my dad’s family still live in Nablus, Palestine. My grandparents are buried in Nablus.
