#AceHistoryNews – Dec.04: In partnership with the Middle East Monitor, the Palestinian History Tapestry invites you to attend its Launch on 11 December 2018: Made by Palestinian women from within and outside Palestine, the Tapestry is probably the largest embroidered collection of illustrative work ever produced by Palestinian embroiderers……………Join us in solidarity with Palestinians worldwide on the 70th anniversary of the adoption of UN Resolution 194 calling for the Palestinian right of return…………..The Palestinian History Tapestry illustrates the history of the Land of Palestine, from the Neolithic era to the present. It draws attention to the history and heritage of the Palestinian people and their land, and to their internationally confirmed right to return to the homes from which they were expelled in 1948 #AceHistoryDesk reports


The Palestinian History Tapestry is an expression of ‘sumud’ (steadfastness) and solidarity: The project is in support of Palestinian women: women who live an oppressed existence, who are poor, whose land has been taken from them; many whose families have lived for over half a century in refugee camps throughout the Middle East; women who, like any wife or mother, desperately want to take care of their families but face a daily struggle for survival.

The Tapestry Project is empowering Palestinian women, enabling them to engage in income generation, whilst telling the story of the villages and towns, the life and heritage of their forebears, the indigenous people of Palestine, through beautiful, skilled embroidery in the Palestine History Tapestry Project.

Come see the embroidered tapestry panels and engage with our panelists, discussing Palestinian embroidery, the PHT project and later history of Palestine with a special focus on Resolution 194.
