The Canada Palestine Cultural Association invites you to its annual Nakba Day Commemoration Dinner. Palestinians generally commemorate the Nakba, otherwise known as “The Catastrophe” on May 15th of each year. The Nakba is every Palestinians calamity, for some it is a homeland they were forced to leave and for others a homeland they never knew. Every year we gather to commemorate the Nakba, we mourn all that was taken, we mourn our loved ones who suffered through an unimaginable tragedy. We mourn our villages and our cities that are now known by names foreign to our tongues. We mourn our stone homes, our mosques and our churches that bore our darkest hour, standing, waiting for our indefinite return. On this day, we come together as Palestinians in the diaspora, as a community, and as a family and we relearn our history, we teach it to our children, and we honor those who came before us.
