Palestine Pre-1947

Slide show on You Tube of Palestinian urban life from 1800 to 1947. This clip allows people to see the beauty of the Palestinian people.

When you reach 1939 this is the photo of Sameera Buderiri on her engagement day.

The old lie that Palestine was a dry desert waiting for a people is just that - a lie.

Music by Joaquin Rodrigo, lyrics Helmut Lotti, sung by Lotti.

It is impossible not to be moved by the evocative images of Palestinian society in happier times when people lived and loved in freedom.
