How You can Help?

1. Donation, a non-patrician privately funded Palestinian organization, incurs a lot of expense to present you this interview. Currently, we are in serious need to maintain and expand the Oral History project to other countries beside Jordan. It is imperative to retain in audio and visual forms our indigenous way of life and history for our future generations. Click below to make your secure online donation via PayPal:

2. Finding Potential Cases

If you are aware of any potential refugees from other towns whom we can interview in Jordan, please contact Mr. Rakan Mahmoud at +962-79-661-5275 with your information. Currently, we are pressed hard to interview people from towns that we have not yet covered, your help is CRITICAL since time is our main enemy.

3. Conducting Interviews

Help preserving our history and culture for future generations. To make it easier on you, we have authored a training manual and a list of questions. We suggest studying these two documents carefully, then use any available technology (such as video camera, digital recorder, or even regular tap recorder) to retain Nakba Oral History as much as you can. Once done, we will be more than happy to post your work at the site after crediting you completely for your work.

4. Transcribing

We are in need of people who have the time and patience to carefully listen to what is spoken in the interviews, and to rephrase it to traditional Arabic (Fus-haa). Then the manuscript has to be typed in Arabic text, which later should be translated to English. It should be noted that you will be COMPLETELY credited and your work shall be published next to each transcribed interview.


The above documents, article, interviews, movies, podcasts, or stories reflects solely the research and opinions of its authors. makes its best effort to validate its contents.

السلام عليكم:
الأخ فلسطين
بداية كل المحبة والتقدير لكل من هو من ثرى فلسطين
اما ما ذكره والدي الحاج ابو صبّاح وهو الان في رحمة الله فقد ذكره استنادا الى ما علم او ما تذكر وهذا لا يعني انتقاصا من شخص او من عائلة سكنت او مرت على ام الشوف
وحقيقة انا لا اعرف عن تفاصيل العائلات في بلدنا ام الشوف ولكنني اود ان اسجل لكل من سيقرأ كلماتي هذه اعتزازي وفخري بكل اهلي وأبناء بلدي ام الشوف خاصة وفلسطين عامة من عرفتهم ومن لم اعرفهم
لذا وجب التوضيح مع الاحترام

السلام عليكم
انا اشكر كل العاملين على هذا الموقع كما اشكر العم ابو صباح علما ان العم ابو صباح لم يذكر عائلات كثيرة من ام الشوف للاسف الشديد
ام اشوف كان فيها عائلات كثيرة غير صبح وصباح و شناعة
فيها عائلة قرعاوي وسمور وجنزير وابو عدة والى اخره
واتمنى من العاملين على هذا الموقع عندمايجرون مقابلة مع كبار السن يفضل ان يكون اكثر من شخص كبير من نفس الجيل
و ليس شخص واحد فقط للدقةو التذكر

السلام عليكم
انا اشكر كل العاملين على هذا الموقع الجميل والمهم جدا.

وقد استمعت الى هذة المقابلة الجميلة للحاج احمدصباح

وقد سألت كبار العائلة عندي عن ما قالة عن عائلة الطيار وجنزير وقال انهم اتو من باقة الغربية وهذا ما نفوة كبار العائلة عندي وقالوا هذا الكلام غير صحيح
بل انهو اسم الطيار هو فقط لقب اطلق ولا يوجد عائلة الطيار بل هم من شناعة
واحببت ان اصحح هذا الخطأ
