Digitizing the Palestine Refugee Experience

Digitizing the Palestine Refugee Experience 1024 682 Euro Mediter

Over half a million negatives, prints, slides, films and videocassettes covering all aspects of the life and history of Palestine refugees from 1948 to the present day are in newly digitized archive of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA)

The first group of iconic photographs and films are part of the exhibition entitled ‘The Long Journey’, which opened on 28 November at the Al-Ma’mal Centre in the Old City of Jerusalem. The archive was inscribed on the UNESCO ‘Memory of the World’ register, which includes collections of outstanding cultural and historical significance.
Once the exhibition closes at the Al-Ma’mal Centre, on 28 January 2014, it will go on tour to key cities in UNRWA areas of operations – the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria, when the situation there allows. It will simultaneously tour centres of culture and politics in Europe and North America.
