Until the War of 1948, Wadi Salib was an impoverished Arab neighborhood in Haifa, Israel. A single day of fighting uprooted its residents. Yet Wadi Salib retained its Arab name, even after Jewish immigrants from Morocco resettled it, replacing one layer of existence with another. In 1959, Misrahi protest against continual discrimination turned the neighborhood and into an icon of ethnic strife between Israeli Jews. Nevertheless, its Arab inscription and the acts committed there lingered in its stones.
