Zochrot collects oral histories from Palestinian refugees who witnessed and survived the Nakba of 1948. Testimonies are collected mainly from internally displaced Palestinians, those who were expelled from their homes but remained within the boundaries of the new Israeli state. The testimonies give witness to Palestinian society, its culture and economics until 1948 and to the lives of refugees since then. Zochrot has also collected testimonies of Jewish fighters who participated in the 1948 war and who agreed to share with us their memories from that time.
