In solidarity with the Palestinian people, we invite you to attend a webinar on the Palestinian cause within the context of contemporary history. The focus will be on the rich heritage of Gaza.
The event will feature Dr. Abaher Elsakka, a sociology professor at Birzeit University in Palestine. He will share excerpts from his book Gaza: A Social History under British Colonial Rule 1917-1948, providing insights into the historical, social, and economic contexts of Gaza during this critical period.
Ibrahim Bajes, a Jerusalem-based researcher, will also discuss his work in documenting the history of various cities and villages in Palestine. He will shed light on the ongoing attempts by the occupation to alter the geographic, historical, and demographic nature of Palestine, drawing from his book, titled "Diaries of Palestine."
The seminar will be moderated by Ikhlas Ahmed, Tours & Exhibition Officer at QNL, who will also provide an overview of QNL's heritage collections that are relevant to Palestine.
Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Palestinian narrative and history.
The webinar will be conducted online via Zoom.
