Refugees in their own land
The recognition of the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homeland is enshrined in UN resolution 194, which was approved by the UN General Assembly. Sixty-eight years ago, when the state of Israel was created on the basis of a UN resolution, an entire nation of people were made refugees. Four hundred Palestinian villages within the borders of today's Israel were demolished and wiped from the map. Survivors of this catastrophe are dispersed in refugee camps in Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. Others can be found scattered in the four corners of the world.
