The It is now over 50 years since the tragedy of the 5 months in 1948 when Palestinians were forced out of their homes and country, lost their friends and extended families and became stateless refugees, denied social and political rights. In fear of their lives they made their way across the border into overcrowded refugee camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. Today there are over 3.4 million Palestinian refugees across the Middle East; half of them are children under 15 years old. Often the children of the camps remember Palestine through the memories and dreams of their grandparents, although this older generation is fast disappearing.
