my father was on one of those people on the boats , he was 13 years old , he only told me that one time in his life , it was so painful for hiim as a kid and he tried all his life to forget , he was scared and panicking , unfair for him , this day left sacr in his soul all his life ....it is amazing to me that someone who suffered from the Nazi can come in a few years to inflict such suffering on other people who did not do anything in their past against them ...

اهلي كانوا في يافا وحسب ما حكولي انو اليهود هددوا يفجروا خزانات المي ويودوا سكان يافا سباحة على البحر
كانوا عم يقصفوا وبيمروا كل ليلة بالمكبرات الصوتية يقولوا راح نعمل فيكن متل دير ياسين
يوم الشعنينة كانوا اهلي راجعين من الكنيسة لقيوا قذيفة جاية في باحة الدار
وزي ما قال سليم الفار قالوا بنحمي الولاد (اخواني كان عمرهم سنتين و اربعين يوم) وهربوا لمصر على امل يرجعوا بعد كم يوم..... وما رجعوا

I am an Armenian born in Jaffa Palestine . I was very young when we left Palestine "for a few weeks until things calm down" as my parents put it.I was told we had to leave because there was shortage of food, people were killing each other in the streets,and because there was no Government.....Of course we never returned to our home. later on, as I studied European History,I came to know that the root of the trouble as usual started from the Big Powers!!!!.Thanks for listening to me as a neutral reader from another point of view...I don't mean to hurt or insult anybody. I loved Jaffa and still do. It will always be my home town.

حملتنا الريح الغاضبة..... من شط البحر
نثرتنا الريح على الكون... فزرعناالخير
وبكينا اليوم على أمس ٍ.... لعظيم الغدر
عمّرنا الكون ولم ننسى!... أمواج القهر
من بات اليوم على الكرسي.. مسلوب القدر
قد كان الأمس ِولم يدري!.... عونا للشـر..
الشر النابت في الأرض ..... قد حرق الزهر
فإوار النار سيحرقهم ..... يوماً في الفجر
أبو طه.

It all began on Saturday May 1st 1948 in the morning. I left with my father to the Souk, for the next day it was Easter. We met some soldiers from the Salvation army who told us that all the souks were closed and no need to go further. We returned and found to our surprise almost all our neighbors standing on their doors with their suicases in hand. There were two ships 'waiting' in the port, they said, and it is a matter of 15 days and we will be back. So, within minutes we made up our mind and left to the port. The boats you see in this picture are lifting Jaffa residents from the quay to the ships waiting some 600 meters far in the sea. You would not believe if I tell you that 24 hours ago, we have'nt got the slightest idea of leaving our country.

In this picture, My later Grandmother Mamdoha Al Dajani witnessed a woman dropped her infant off the boat by mistake thinking that it was her Jewlery box. After she realized the mistake and Boat would not go back, the poor woman lost her mind.
