The Palestinian refugees of 1936 were...Jews


The Palestinian refugees of 1936 were...Jews

Here are photos of Jewish houses in Tel Aviv  destroyed by Arabs of Jaffa at the outbreak of the "non-violent" riots in 1936:


Thousands of Jews were forced to flee their homes:

Some Jews were forced to move their belongings to a public park in Tel Aviv:


Here is a refugee camp near Rishon LeZion for the Jews who lost their homes during the riots.

All these photos were done by Zoltan Kluger.

I found them at this Israeli photo archive website that just became public - although the website was created in 1998, and it shows.
