On Saturday, June 23, 2007, Zochrot joined the refugees of the village Imwas for a tour of the remains of their village. Imwas, Yalu and Bayt Nuba are three villages that were destroyed during the 1967 war. The JNF founded Canada Park on their remains.
Throughout Canada Park signs are posted telling the different histories of the area but ignoring the hundreds of years of Palestinian settlement. A little over a year ago the JNF, following intervention of theh High Court of Justice, posted two signs, in Yalu and IMwas, that designate the existence of the villages. Since then, the signs have been repeatedly vandalized and removed. On the tour last Saturday new signs were posted in the park designating the sites of the villages.
The refugees showed us where the houses once stood, the wells nearby, the fruit trees and the springs.
