Nakba – ‘the Catastrophe’.
A talk by Doctor Khader Abu-Hayyeh, Nakba survivor.
The Doctor’s Story.
Khader was a little boy living in Lydda in 1948 when his family fled from the Israeli 89th Commando Battalion which was carrying out widespread massacres including the machine-gunning of 80 people sheltering in the Dahmash Mosque. Khader and his family were forced to walk miles during the summer heat, an event referred to as the ‘Lydda death march’. Hear Khader’s tory – how he became a doctor working in Tunbridge Wells – and his views on “What is the solution?”.
