The massacre that took place on 29th October 1956 in
Kufr Qasem was not the only massacre Palestinians have
experienced in their long and painful history. Unlike the
massacres that are associated with the Nakba, it was
perpetrated after the Israeli state was established.
It was deliberate, planned, calculated, a cold blooded
murder against workers returning from their fields not
having heard that a curfew was imposed over their
After the massacre, Kafr Qasem was subjected to
military cordon and media prohibition, which imposed
debilitating isolation after the massacre. No one was
allowed in or out of the village and a tight gag order was
placed on the news. Twenty-two days after the massacre,
news finally reached the world.
As a visual artist, Samia Halaby always set herself high standards. She has aspired to ‘do the most
advanced painting possible.’ But this was not the full extent of her ambition. Her credo, so
eloquently expressed there, is that she also wanted through her art to “support the ambition of
Palestinian liberation.” The evocative drawings in this book document the atrocities of Kafr Qasem.
To capture these events on paper she gathered data in every form possible: oral testimonials,
photographs, media reports, anything she could lay her hands on. Not only did she carry out
archival research, she also managed to meet with survivors and conduct face to face interviews and
field visits. These testaments are also included in the book.
The drawings in this book provide superb examples of Halaby’s skill and artistry at figurative
drawing. The emotions of anger and fear spring out of the pages and enable the viewer to relive the
terrible suffering endured by the inhabitants of this small Palestinian village that found itself inside
the border of the newly established Israeli state in 1949.
