Step into the hidden corridors of history with our newest publication, "Remembering the Prisoners of War Camps." Authored by detention scholar Dr. Shai Gortler and our own team member Umar Al-Ghubari, this groundbreaking booklet sheds light on an often-overlooked aspect of the 1948 Nakba: the story of the prisoner camps. Delve into testimonies, research materials, and archival documents as we uncover the experiences of thousands of Palestinians unjustly detained from 1948-1950.

As part of our commitment to education and remembrance, we recently launched the booklet during a groundbreaking tour  retracing the footsteps of those who endured incarceration and displacement. Participants had the opportunity to visit three of the five permanent prisoner camps, delving into the profound legacy of resistance and resilience that emerged within these walls; From the remnants of Ijlil, where the first prisoner strike ignited a tradition of resistance, to the repurposed village of Umm Khalid, and the haunting echoes of Atlit's past, each stop reveals layers of history waiting to be unearthed. We explored the history and heard poignant testimonies that underscore the enduring struggle for justice.

As we remember the prisoners of war camps, we confront the harsh realities of ongoing mass arrests, torture, and displacement faced by Palestinians today. In the face of such devastation, the importance of uncovering the truth and understanding the roots of present-day injustices becomes more critical than ever.

This release coincides with Palestinians Prisoners Day, a solemn occasion to honor the plight of Palestinian prisoners and reflect on their ongoing struggle for freedom. In the face of ongoing injustices, it is more important than ever to uncover the truth and advocate for change.
