Images of displacement and war, but also of hope and resilience, have taken over Beirut's glitzy Downtown Souks. To commemorate the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, observed on Nov. 29, the Lebanese Palestinian Dialogue Committee has launched a photo exhibition in the Beirut Souks in partnership with the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia and the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.Since the exodus of 1948, more than 700,000 Palestinians have lived a life of displacement across the region.The exhibition, consisting of five different sections, will run from Nov. 29 to Dec. 4 . One section, "From Palestine to Lebanon, a Story of Displacement," features a selection of 30 photographs from UNRWA's film and photo archive that represent the hardships Palestinians have been through since 1948 .
