Sands of Sorrow (1950)

The story of Gaza , refugees and Palestine told 50 years ago.

Only two years after Israel ‘s creation, this documentary was created to tell

and portray the lives of Palestinians dispossessed, crammed into refugee camps in Gaza ,

Jerusalem, West Bank, orphans, children and education and struggles to have their voices heard.

While Israel celebrated its birth,the Palestinians experienced

one of the longest homelessness in the world.

Despite the dire situation in 1950,

the film does an excellent job at showcasing the Palestinians’

humanity esapecially children.

A Must watch if anyone has the time.
