In this 1971 photo from the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, UNRWA, archive, Palestinian refugees pose for picture in the New Amman refugee camp in Eastern Jordan. The photo is part of UNRWA’s vast photo archive being digitized in Gaza and Denmark to preserve a record of one of the world’s most entrenched refugee problems, created in what the Palestinians call the “Nakba,” or “catastrophe”— their uprooting in the war over Israel’s 1948 creation.
