Nakba 1948



NEKBE, an Arabic-origin term meaning “Great Catastrophe.” The literary figure and writer Nurettin Taşkesen’s work titled “70-Year Palestinian Drama Nekbe 1948” has been published by Mihrabad Publications. This book narrates the events following May 15, 1948, when 750,000 Palestinians were displaced from their homes, villages, and lands, and became refugees due to massacres, oppression, and forced exiles perpetrated by Zionists. As Palestinians went into exile, they took their house and shop keys with them. Therefore, the key symbolizes the great pain they endured, carrying the meaning of “We will return to our homes.” Palestinians refer to this day as “NEKBE,” signifying a great calamity. Nurettin Taşkesen’s book “70-Year Palestinian Drama Nekbe 1948 Great Catastrophe” provides a documentary-like narrative of this major catastrophe based on real events.
