Saturday Share the Wealth with Jeneane and Lena Salameh: Stories of a Land That Lives Within Us

by Mark Chmiel

We will be sharing stories of living in the United States as Palestinians, experiences we have had in Palestine, and what the term Al-Nakba means to us. In sharing our stories we hope to spread the story of a land that lives within us.

Since we were young, we have been traveling back to Palestine. Lena lived in Palestine for about 3 years, and we have spent many summers in Jalazone refugee camp in the West Bank. Our family lost their home and country 68 years ago but we have not lost our hope to return to the town that many generations of our family have called home.

Lena, a graduate of Maryville University, will begin SLU Law School in August.  Jeneane is graduating with her Master’s in Accounting from SLU next month.
