Location: Kimmel Center Rosenthal Pavilion (10th Floor), 60 Washington Square South New York, NY 10012When the government tries to silence a history, a light is shed on the nation’s biggest taboo. This is the story of those who fought to erase Palestine and created an Israeli landscape of denial.

Join us on December 3rd at 6:30 pm for a screening of the acclaimed documentary “On the Side of the Road.” The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director, Lia Tarachansky. Refreshments provided!


“On the Side of the Road” examines Israelis’ collective amnesia about the 1948 Nakba (catastrophe) when over 700,000 Palestinians were expelled from their homes. Through interviews with Israeli war veterans and descendants of Palestinian refugees of 1948, former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky unravels the ideology of denial perpetuated in Israel today.
