Al-Nakba: 1948 Palestinian Exodus: Historiography

The guide was created in support of The Palestinian Oral History Archives Project at AUB Libraries. The guide focuses on the various aspects of historiography of 1948 Palestinian Nakba and highlights selective library resources, projects and websites.

The historiography of the 1948 events in Palestine remains a work in progress and a true battlefield for in this case, writing history is one of the issues at stake in the conflict itself ". “War of independence” to some and “catastrophe” (nakba) to others"
