My research is focuses on the period of the 50s. I started by interviewing dozens of Palestinians who lived in "Wadi Nisnas" during those years. As I began to understand the social difficulties they faced, I was surprised to find out that their real story is a battle for their true identity. Not only did the Arabic language prevailing in the neighborhood disappear, but memories of a culturally-rich past dissipated in the midst of an ever growing feeling of hopelessness.
