As in every year, Zochrot will hold a memorial ceremony on the 75th anniversary of the massacre in Dayr Yasin.
In April 9, 1948, Zionist forces took control of the village of Dayr Yasin, west of Jerusalem. What followed was one of the worst massacres during the Nakba. The survivors were expelled, became refugees and are to this day prevented from returning. A Jewish Neighborhoods named Kfar Shaul b. and Har Nof were built on the site of the village.
