More Than Refugees: Memories of Loss and Stories of Hope
In 1948, over 750,000 Palestinian men, women and children were expelled from their homes and forced to live as refugees in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. 72 years later, the Palestinian refugee population has grown to more than 5 million. Palestinians who experienced the Nakba in 1948 have since witnessed up to four successive generations endure even more displacement and poverty.
This Refugee Day, we recognise the struggles and bravery of millions of refugees around the world, including Palestinians, fleeing violence and persecution. All refugees and displaced people deserve stability, justice and peace. We hope these stories we share today will inspire you to learn more, get involved however you can and advocate for the rights of refugees to live in peace.
