Homeland: Oral Histories of Palestine and Palestinians edited by Staughton Lynd, Sam Bahour, Alice Lynd
The editors travelled throughout Israel and the occupied territories to find the multi-generational families living in towns, villages and refugee camps whose voices resonate in Homeland. These are Palestinians who lost their homes in 1948, who grew up as refugees in Jordan or Lebanon after the dispossessions of 1949 or 1967, women battling for their land as well as their rights, former prisoners, farmers, workers, children and great-grandparents.
Homeland poignantly links the people to the land, the attachment to which has created and sustained Palestinian national identity around the world. These are stories of loss, of exile, of remembering.
