Host Simon Spungin is joined by Haaretz's Hagar Shezaf, to discuss her recent article detailing Israeli efforts to 'disappear' documented evidence of Israeli war crimes during the 1948 War of Independence – the Palestinian Nakba.

Hagar, who interviewed archivists, historians and defense officials, tells us about the reporting that went into the story, reactions to it (including an editorial in Haaretz) and why it matters.
