On Wednesday, April 8, we commemorated the 67th anniversary of the Dayr Yassin massacre. We walked along the main street of the village (now Kanfey Nesharim Street), learn about the village and its Nakba, and passed some of the Palestinian buildings that are still standing along the road - people were massacred in some of them - as well as the Kfar Shaul mental hospital, whose buildings were once the core of the village. We stopped at the remains of the Palestinian cemetery and ended the tour in the grove behind the hospital.

We carried signs bearing the names of the victims of the massacre.

The writer and poet Salman Natur and Prof. Yehouda Shenhav-Sharabani participated in the event and launched Natur's new book "The Memory had conversed with me and disappeared - The Life and Death of the grooved face Sheikh", translated by Shenhav-Sharabani to Hebrew and published by Resling publishing house this month. Both read pieces from the new book.
