ABSTRACT
The article calls for the use of oral history in the maintenance of the identity of Palestinians and in forging of collective memory. The case of Palestinians inside Israel is cited as an example that magnifies the vitality of oral narratives, as well as the alleged deprivation of Palestinians of their cultural heritage and the distortion of their national identity. Also discussed is the significance of the Israeli educational system as a means of order and control in Israelizing Palestinians.
