60 years later, massacre by border policemen still haunts Kafr Kasim

With the 60th anniversary of the Kafr Kasim massacre just days away, local leaders opened a harrowing audiovisual exhibition on Tuesday to keep alive memories of the carnage and to back their demands for formal recognition by the state of its responsibility for the mass killings of Arab civilians.

“The panorama is so important so that coming generations won’t forget the massacre,” said Issa Salah, who as a 20-year-old knew many of the 48 people who were killed and who himself narrowly escaped death. “They should not forget so that it doesn’t happen again.”
