With Fida Jiryis, Palestinian author
In this webinar, Fida, a Palestinian refugee, spoke about her return to “Palestine” at the age of twenty-two, only to find that her home country had been transformed into “Israel” and that her experience as a Palestinian would now be one of living as "a stranger in her own land". This evocative and thoughtful conversation covered such important questions as: Where is "home" for those Palestinian refugees displaced by the Nakba? What tensions and challenges do Palestinians refugees experience when returning to a land which is now under firm Israeli military and political control?
