Three Generations after 71 years !

“My family owned more than 20 stores in Bir al-Sabe’. My father had a shop that sold tools used by Bedouins. I was a boy during Al-Nakba, and as airplanes started to bombard the area,
a few bombs landed next to our house. We escaped the shelling and walked towards the valley. We walked 50 kilometers in the desert. My elder brother died on the road. We reached Rafah and settled there for a few years until we headed to Egypt. We continued around the whole world until we reached Canada. Today, after all these years, three generations went back to Palestine – me, my children, and my grandchildren – to look for my home and recall my memories.”
