The Palestinian refugees of 1936 were...Jews

Here are photos of Jewish houses in Tel Aviv  destroyed by Arabs of Jaffa at the outbreak of the "non-violent" riots in 1936:



Thousands of Jews were forced to flee their homes:


Some Jews were forced to move their belongings to a public park in Tel Aviv:



Here is a refugee camp near Rishon LeZion for the Jews who lost their homes during the riots.


All these photos were done by Zoltan Kluger.

I found them at this Israeli photo archive website that just became public - although the website was created in 1998, and it shows.
