Truman Village was established in 1949 and named in honor of U.S. president Harry S. Truman, whose support was critical for the establishment of the State of Israel.
In return, the village was promised official recognition, thereby entitling it to services such as roads, running water and electricity.
The village was built on land which had originally belonged to the arab village of Beit Nabala, three kilometres east of Ben Gurion International Airport.
In 2006 it had a population of 606 residents.

My mother spent her childhood years back in the 60s in Truman Village.
In 2013 I went back to the village with her. We were eager to find out what has become of the childhood landscapes she still longs for after all those years.
