About this book
A visual reportage of an incident in 1956 on the Gaza Strip, which left 111 Palestinian refugees dead, shot by Israeli soldiers.
Rafah, a town at the southernmost tip of the Gaza Strip, is a squalid place. Situated on the border with Egypt, swaths of Rafah have been reduced to rubble. Buried deep in the archives is one bloody incident, in 1956, that left 111 Palestinian refugees dead, shot by Israeli soldiers. This title captures the essence of the tragedy.
