“Memoirs of a Stolen Land” is a video series that highlights how the occupation of Palestine has affected people from all walks of life.

In the series,  Palestinian refugees, Palestinian-Americans, journalists, activists and artists discuss how they have been directly impacted by Israel’s illegal occupation that began in 1948.

Zahra Haider, a journalism student at Northwestern University, was inspired to create this project after attending the National Students for Justice in Palestine Conference at Tufts University in October.

The first video of the film series that will be exclusively premiered on Palestine in America is Nadine Darwish. Darwish, a Palestinian-American and current president of SJP at Loyola University in Chicago, has not been able to visit her ancestors homeland because of Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestine.

Darwish’s grandparents were born in Palestine ’48 and in this clip she discusses how her grandfathers both passed away before being able to return to a free and liberated Palestine.
