Sands of Sorrow – 1950

The reality of Palestinian-Israeli History

A people made homeless (1950)

There is an astonishing amount of ignorance about the basic facts of the so-called Arab-Israeli conflict.

This footage was shot in the late 1940s to educate the public about the plight of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who had been made homeless as a result of the violence and intimidation that accompanied the founding of the state of Israel.

What most Palestinians thought would be a temporary dislocation lasting only a few weeks at most became permanent. Homeless with just the clothes on their backs, they were left in the desert without food, water, and medical care to die.
