Nablu comes from the word Nablus, which is “one of the oldest cities in the world.” Nablus was established over 9,000 years ago, and it was initially called Shechem. Shechem was the first capital of the northern ancient Israelite kingdom. The name eventually changed to Nablus coming from Neapolis during the Roman Times.
During the British Mandate from 1917 to 1948, Nablus was the core of Palestinian Arab Nationalism and a center of resistance against the British. After 1948, the Arab-Israeli war, Nablus was under Jordanian rule and became a camp for refugees. The Israeli army occupied Nablus in 1967, and hard years fell upon the city as more refugee camps were built. In 2002, the town was invaded by Second Intifada and raided. Today, the residents of Nablus continuously work towards repairing and strengthening the city.
The amount of history in the city Nablus is evident. Even more so, is the determination of the residents of this city. Through all the hardships, war, and chaos, the people continue to pick themselves back up. Nablus, as one of the most ancient cities in the world, is still standing today, because of perseverance. This city has been a place of refuge. A place to recall where you are and where you want to go. A place that some call home with centuries of stories.
