Walking on Ruins: The Untold Story of Yalu
ABSTRACT

In June 2017, Yalu will observe its anniversary of 50 years of extinction. The Palestinian village has a long history to tell. A history of forced transformation and oblivion, of applying thick layers of trimmed present on the remaining shreds of the past. Since its expulsion in 1967and the creation of Ayalon Canada Park on its ruins, deceptive silence rests on the Palestinian village. Hopefully one day Yalu will tell its story – and let the windrows of silence lift up from its ruins.
