The Jaffa Slope Park Author: Margot Pagot and Francesca Atzas 11/2020 The "Slope Park" which was established about a decade ago in the Ajami neighborhood of Yafa is rather an unsual case in which the authorities themselves left a memory for the Nakba of the Palestinian residents of Yafa in the design of the park. In Fact, the symbolic memory has almost disappeared in the design of the park and the colorful tiles incorporated in its squares, taken from the ruins of destroyed houses, look more like an orientalist decorative element than a monument to the tens of thousands of expelled Yafa residents. Not only in design but also in use, instead of meeting the needs of the residents, the park only deepens the gentrification and repression of the Palestinian families in Ajami. Read the full article about the establishment of the park and its meaning, by Margot Pagot and Francesca Atzas who researched the place as part of their internship at "Zochrot".
