A Tour of the Sea: From Wadi Nisnas to Wadi Jamal
In Partnership with Tijwal Safar

November 19th | 09:00-17:00
The tour will be in Arabic

The Palestinian Museum, in partnership with the Tijwal Safar team, organises an educational tour in Haifa to reconsider official historical narratives in light of oral histories that people “tell” about places, their social and cultural history, the changes that occurred due to colonialism, and the geographical rupture that disrupts unity among Palestinian cities.

The Tijwal Safar team organises guided tours throughout Palestine, with the motto: “Travel the land to make it yours.” This partnership stems from the Palestinian Museum’s belief in the importance of grounded and situated learning.

Guided Tour in Partnership with Baladna Youth Group
Return to Al-Mansheya Neighbourhood- Yafa

Friday, December 3rd | 09:30-13:30
The tour will be in Arabic

During the 1948 Nakba, Zionist gangs demolished and depopulated more than 531 villages, over 70 of which were along the Palestinian coast. Over a dozen urban centres met a similar fate. The demolition and depopulation of large parts of the cities, such as the Al-Mansheya neighbourhood in Yafa and the Al-Hisbah neighbourhood in Haifa, facilitated the crystallisation of the Zionist project on the ruins of Palestinian Arab cities and villages. The Palestinian Museum’s new exhibition, “A People by the Sea”, contemplates the issue of demolition through the destruction of Al-Mansheya. Although the city was majority Arab and to be part of the Palestinian state according to the United Nations partition plan, it was nevertheless attacked a few days after the fall of Haifa, and its people were forced to flee by land and sea to escape death.

The tour will use maps and pictures, search for historical evidence and antiquities, as well as discuss cultural and economic life as it unfolded at the time.
