[Arab League]. Ma'sat al-laji'in al-Filastiniyin [The Tragedy of Palestinian Refugees].

[Egypt or Lebanon?], 1968.

4to (145 x 195 mm). 20 pp. Original plain wrappers. In Arabic.


Rare pamphlet printed for the first Human Rights conference of the Arab League. The booklet discusses the numbers of Palestinian refugees since 1948, the cities they had to leave, the countries to which they moved, and the inadequacy of the support in food, shelter and education provided to the refugees by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).

Printed soon after the Six-Day War in 1967, which caused some 300,000 Palestinians to become refugees. The situation of Palestine and the Palestinians was the primary focus of the Arab Commission on Human Rights, established in 1968 as the Permanent Arab Commission on Human Rights (ACHR) as part of the Arab Regional Conference for Human Rights that was held in Beirut. Extremely rare.


A vertical crease; some light wear and browning.
