Two-part Al Jazeera documentary on the Palestinian Nakba

This 2-part documentary is a highly informative account of the events that led to the creation of the State of Israel in 1948, referred to by Palestinians as Al Nakba, or the catastrophe.

The documentary highlights the ways in which the creation of the State of Israel was made possible through several factors, on top of the fact that the mistreatment of Palestinians shockingly (or not?!) started well before the creation of Israel.

Totaling about 3 hours in length, it’s as heartbreaking as it is comprehensive. It’s clearly not easy to stomach all the injustice and atrocities involved, but it’s well worth watching. +
