Join us on May 15th for Combatants for Peace's Fourth Joint Palestinian-Israeli Nakba Remembrance Ceremony to commemorate the displacement and erasure of hundreds of Palestinian communities, which started in 1948 and continues to the present. Together, we recall the pain of the Palestinian community in the year 1948 when more than 700,000 Palestinians became refugees. Families were expelled from their homes, their villages and cities destroyed. The Joint Nakba ("catastrophe" in Arabic) Remembrance Ceremony expresses our belief that peace and reconciliation involves a sincere and honest reckoning with history. The ceremony started as the sister event to the annual Israeli-Palestinian Joint Memorial Ceremony.

Combatants for Peace (CfP) understands that for Israelis and Palestinians to end the occupation and find a solution to the conflict, we must acknowledge the truth of history, listen earnestly to each other’s stories, and compassionately behold each other’s humanity. This year, we will center the ceremony around the theme of "liberation" — how do we liberate ourselves from occupation, oppression, and violence? What does liberation look like, and how do we begin to heal from our past and present trauma?
