Jaffa, Nazareth, and Jerusalem in Palestine 1932 **
A rare and wonderful video showing Palestine 1932 life and commercial and scientific activity in Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Nazareth and Jerusalem in 1932.
The video also shows the Palestinian Arab Scouts in this tour of the city of Acre on the occasion of the New Year. The Scout movement in Palestine started in 1912 at St. George’s School in Jerusalem, and participated in the World Scout Jamborees in 1929 and 1933. Palestine was admitted in 1993 as a special member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) even thought they did belong to a national state that has a seat in the United Nations..

Raimo Kangasniemi describes himself: “I have a Master of Arts degree from the university of Tampere in 2008, being a Common History major with undergraduate-level studies in Arts History among other subjects. My interests include astronomy, history, literature, photography and translation. I translate poems from English to Finnish and vice versa as a hobby and have blog (and Facebook pages) for that and several for my own writings.
I am a useless humanist with a love for art, astronomy, history, literature, science, human rights and social justice. I hate oppression.
