21 Pebbles to Return Home


An interactive book aimed at children and adolescents, inspired by the exhibition A People by the Sea: Narratives from the Palestinian Coast. In this book, the protagonist Najma takes us on a journey over 100 years back to life in coastal cities. With her, we recover some details of life at the time. Najma leaves behind for us 21 ‘pebbles’, represented by cards, to restore snapshots of Palestinian life before and during the Nakba. Children can take their journey with the book home from the exhibition, to carry with them as many scents, memories, and questions as they can.
