Nakba and Survival: The Anti-Heroes of 1948

Dr. Adel Manna, a historian of modern Palestine and senior fellow at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, discusses his new book, Nakba and Survival: The Story of the Palestinians who Remained in Haifa and the Galilee, 1948-1956. Dr. Manna talks about the circumstances that led Palestinians in parts of the Galilee to remain to a greater degree than elsewhere, why he decided to study and write about a seldom-discussed chapter of history, the story of the Palestinian Arab Communists, and how Palestinians in Israel survived as a marginalized people.


This season of the Tel Aviv Review is made possible by The Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, which promotes humanistic, democratic, and liberal values in the social discourse in Israel.
