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.

أخي عبد الهادي

معاك مدير الموقع صلاح منصور

الرجاء أن تبعث بسلامات حارة للوالد وقول له بأن مقابلته كانت رقم أربعة وبذلك كان ينتابني الشك هل أكمل هذا العمل المنهك والمكلف أم أعمل مشروع آخر؟

آخر 30 دقيقية من مقابلة الوالد أقنعنتني بأن عملنا هذا بالفعل جبار ويجب أن يستمر لأن ذاكرتنا هي مفتاح عودتنا

مع أجمل التحييات

فرحتنا بعودتنا

صلاح منصور / أبو السوس

رسالة الى والدي!!!

جف القلمْ.. فاعرته دمعاتي ...حبرا ليكمل يا ابي ابياتي

وليرثني بعد الفراق فإنه ...يا ابتاه ضاقت بالحياة حياتي

وتسربت دمعات قلبي ربما...حبرا وضاقت بالاسى عبراتي

ياسيدي يا قدوتي يا والدي...هذا مماتك سيدي كمماتي

وانا الطفولة لم يشب ربيعها ...من لي يقيم يا ابي عثراتي

لو تُرجع الكلمات مثلك سيدي...لجعلت عمري منبعَ الكلمات ِ

اني وربك لست الا مؤمنا ...والموت يا ابتي سبيلُ الآتي

لكنه الحزن الذي اهدته لي...كتبُ الحياة فصار في صفحاتي

ياوالدي يا من رحلت ودونما ...احضى لاطبع آخر القبلات ِ

لو ابدلوا روحي بروحك يا ابي...او جهزوا بدل الرفاة رفاتي

اني اراك على مداد بصيرتي ...روحا تعطر خلوتي في ذاتي

وارى وداعك قد اتى شبحا فهل ...يدري الوادع بقسوة الآهات ِ

اني دعوت الله دعوة صادق...ان يستجيب لدعوتي وصلاتي

أن يغفر الله ذنوبك كلها...يارب اقبل خالص الدعوات ِ

Salam and blessings we love this interview with Muhammad Abdulkadir al-Sa'afeen - when was the interview made - is mr Abdul Kadir al-Saafeen still a life and how is he doing? We would like to re play this video and some others as well on our website PalestineFreeVoice. Also we would like to support this wonderful and important project but prefer to send a moneyorder if possible !? By the way - do you know - that at the "Hebrew University of Jerusalem" - in the department of the "Center of Jewish Art" - is an ongoing project similar to your work on Palestine Remembered. The project group is traveling all over the globe to collect evidence from the past.I have heard the project have to BEG donors for money - and have a hard time to get support even from their own people !? Best regards
