ABSTRACT
In his novella named Returning to Haifa, Palestinian writer Ghassan Kanafânî tells the story of a Palestinian couple who were forced to flee from Haifa leaving their infant child behind because of the military action in the streets of the city at 1948. After 20 years when Israel opened the borders after 1967 war they went back to Haifa. Israeli writer Sami Michael deals with the same story after thirty five years. Michael narrates the tragedy of young Nabile who lives in Haifa at 1948. She leaves her baby to look the events in the streets and was not able to return her home then. In this paper, in the context of the characters we will focus on how the same story was held in two different novels. Then we will examine analytically the parallelism, similarities and differences between the two novels.
