The Palestinian diaspora (الشتات الفلسطيني‎) are the +6 million Palestinians living outside of the historic borders of Palestine. While most are displaced by war with Israel, others have emigrated overseas for reasons such as work opportunity, education and religious persecution. Many of them are found in Jordan (3,240,000), Syria (630,000), Chile (500,000), Lebanon (402,582), Saudi Arabia (280,245), Egypt (270,245) and the United States (255,000). An estimated 100,000 Palestinians live in the European Union.



Between September till December 2015, I went on a trip to meet and interview Palestinians in Europe, Canada, the US, Chile, Australia, India and Dubai. This website shares these interviews and memories. It is both an archive, a journey and a source of inspiration.

Since then, I add a couple of interviews per year and exhibit from time to time. If you want to follow the project, please use the social media buttons above.

The stories on this site are intended to be shared. You can use them for non commercial use if you mention and share the project (Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License).

Warm regards,
