About the Film
Christianity was born in Palestine two thousand years ago. From there it spread throughout the Middle East and to the rest of the world.
In 1948, tens of thousands of Palestinian villagers were driven from their homes in what was officially dubbed “Operation Broom”, intended to literally sweep tens of thousands of Palestinians from their homes in the fertile hills and valleys of the Galilee, and make way for settlers in the newly created state of Israel.
For more than 60 years the Palestinians, Christians and Muslims, have suffered displacement, expulsion, wars, occupation and oppression. This is their story, in their voices, from the Nakba of 1948 until today.
