From march 25th to 30th, the Near East Cultural and Educational
Foundation (NECEF) and Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights (SPHR) will be touring Professor Ilan Pappe in commemoration of the 60th year of the Palestinian Nakbah (Catastrophe) . Prof. Pappe was born in
Haifa to German-Jewish parents who had fled Nazi persecution in the 1930s. He graduated from the Hebrew University in 1978, and
obtained his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in 1984. He was the Academic Director of the Research Institute for Peace at Givat Haviva from 1993 to 2000, and is currently teaching at the University of
Exeter in Britain.
His early books dealt with Israeli policy in 1948, a subject he has returned to in his latest book, "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine". His "A History of Modern Palestine" covers the last two hundred years and focuses on cultural and social issues. His "The Modern Middle
East" is a textbook that brings to the fore the social and cultural developments in the region in the last century. "The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine" will be available at the lectures for sale at a special price for fund raising.
