Six Day War testimonies from Nablus
It is 50 years since the Six Day War of 1967, the invasion of Nablus and the start of an occupation which continues to this day.
The invasion was a terrifying experience for the people of Nablus. We asked six people to recall their memories of that time - they make very moving and compelling testimonies.
Our booklet with these testimonies is now available online
