palestinian pound


An original Palestinian coin minted in 1927, shown to me by a man whom I’ll call Adam that I met in the Askar Refugee Camp last night. Adam’s father, who was displaced from his home in 1948 and moved into the refugee camp outside of Nablus, kept this coin as a reminder of his home. Before passing away, Adam’s father passed the coin down to him. I felt honored that Adam trusted me enough to show me such a personal heirloom.
