[ePalestine] Haaretz: What Are Old Photos and Films of Palestinians Doing in the IDF Archive?

Fascinating, infuriating, insightful, and inspiring, all in one...


What Are Old Photos and Films of Palestinians Doing in the IDF Archive?

From her [Dr. Rona Sela, a curator and researcher of visual history at Tel Aviv University] point of view, the systematic collecting of Palestinian visual materials in the IDF Archive "makes it possible to write an alternative history that counteracts the content created by the army and the military archive, which is impelled by ideological and political considerations." In the material she found in the army archive, she sees "images that depict the history of the Palestinian people and its long-term ties to this soil and this place, which present an alternative to the Zionist history that denied the Palestinians' existence here, as well as their culture and history and the protracted tragedy they endured and their national struggle of many years."
