The Hebrek book "Tashakh" by Israeli author and veteran Yoram Kanyuk, has a passage (p.96-99). His commander tells him the inhabitants of the village are planning to prevent the embarkment of illegal Jewish immigrants from Europe. He expels the villagers and is then told by another soldier this is just an excuse - they were expelled because people don't want Arabs here.

Our families (Bushnaq) came from Bosnia to Qisaria in 1884 via Turkey and Syria. They had large areas of agricultural land nearby in Susafa and Khirbet esh sharkas and other areas. They built the stone houses with red roofs in Qisariya. Some left before 1948 when a railway was built which bypassed the caesarea port, ruining their trade. Others stayed behind and were ethnically cleansed in 1948.
The town mosque is today a restaurant and bar and the toilets are under the minaret.

I would love to know more about my fathers family life in Caesarea before they lift to Haifa and why the Bushnaqs fled Caesarea long before 1948.

I was raised in Caesarea. I am shocked by these pictures and horrified that there was once an Arab village here. People in Caesarea do not know of this history. I would like to discuss the village that once existed with anyone who is interested, and to find out what life there was like.

I do not think though that the location of the village is the same as the location of modern Caesarea. Rather, I think that the village stood where the current kibbutz of Sdot Yam stands.

Does anyone know about this?

Best wishes,

Yaniv
