Casa Árabe, the Association of Spanish Diplomats and the publishing house Cuadernos de Laberinto organize this afternoon, at 7:00 p.m., the presentation of the book Misión en Palestina 1948-1952. Birth of the State of Israel, Pablo de Azcárate. It will be on Wednesday May 22 in Madrid. Free entrance until full capacity. In Spanish.
With the reedition of this work, published in Spain in 1968, it is about contributing to the recovery of the memory of Pablo de Azcárate and his personal commitment, which earned him, like so many others, exile. In addition, through the first-hand reflections of a privileged observer, and from the perspective of a specific context and historical moment, Mission in Palestine offers an interesting reflection on one of the most outstanding episodes of the 20th century, whose shadows are still projected about our days: the partition of Palestine, the Nakba and the creation of the State of Israel.
