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.

رحمة الله عليك يا والدي الحبيب وان شاء الله يجعل مثواك الجنه لقد كنت دوما تذكر لنا اللد وفلسطين منذ طفولتك ونشأتك فيهاوعن عشقك لها حتى احسسناها بجميع جوارحنا واحببناها كمااحببنها انت
لن ننساها يوما ما دام الدم يجري في عروقنا

رحمة الله عليك يا عمي ابونايف لقد احببت اللد وفلسطين ولا اذكر بانني قد جلست معك ولو لمره بدون ان تاتي على ذكر مدينتك الجميله وتاريخها العريق .ان خسارتنا لك ليست كخسارة اي انسان عادي وانما هي فقدان لمرحله تاريخيه من حياة شعبنا الفلسطيني من جيل النكبه وجزء من ارتباطنا بقضيتنا المركزية ووطننا السليب .
عاشت فلسطين حره عربيه وعاشت امتنا العربيه المجيده والمجد والخلود لشهدائنا الابرار .
