Join the Center for Palestine Studies for a conversation with Adel Manna and Rashid Khalidi in celebration of Manna’s work Nakba and Survival: The Story of Palestinians Who Remained in Haifa and the Galilee, 1948-1956.
Nakba and Survival tells the stories of Palestinians in Haifa and the Galilee during, and in the decade after, mass dispossession. Manna uses oral histories and Palestinian and Israeli archives, diaries, and memories to meticulously reconstruct the social history of the Palestinians who remained and returned to become Israeli citizens. While scholars of the Palestinian national movement have often studied Palestinian resistance to Israel as related to the armed struggle and the cultural struggle against the Jewish state, Manna shows that remaining in Israel under the brutality of occupation and fighting to return to Palestinian communities after displacement are acts of heroism in their own right.

Adel Manna is a historian who specializes in the history of Palestine.
