Auteur: Pappe, Ilan
Titel: Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
Since the Holocaust, it has been almost impossible to hide large-scale crimes against humanity. In our communicative world few modern catastrophes are concealed from the public eye. And yet, Ilan Pappe unveils, one such crime has been erased from the global public memory: the ethnic cleansing of the Palestinians in 1948. The pervasive denial of the Nakbah, as Palestinians call the catastrophe that befell them, is still a mystery today. But why is it denied, and by whom? "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" offers an investigation of this mystery, and Pappe puts forward an elucidating - if contentious - interpretation of the relationship of Nakbah to the Palestine-Israeli conflict, naming Nakbah as the conflict's very origin.
