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.

there is a fabulous Jewish phrase that goes, “gam zu letovah.” It means, quite simply, “also this is for good.”

الله يسامحك يا عمي ابو جمال انت واخي فواز سلامة .... ان اسم جمزو لا يعود الى مستعمرة يهودية كانت تسمى جمزا لا توفاه .. حيث ان جمزا لا توفاه هو عنوان لقصة يهودية من تاليف الكاتبة اليهودية ايفا جابي ...... والقصة تبين ان كل الامور السيئة التي تحدث للانسان قد تؤدي الى ما هو خير للانسان

gam zu l'tovah", everything is for the best

اتمنى وارجو من الاخ فواز ان يعيد مونتاج هذا الجزء من المقابلة

مقابلة جميلة جدا وتذكرني باحاديث والدي رحمه الله عن جمزو وايام جمزو واراضي جمزو واهالي جمزو ولكن سائني تعليق من الاخ معد المقابلة على كلام الحاج ابو جمال حين قال ان الاهالي كانو يتوعدون الصهاينة بالانتقام اثناء النزوح
فكان تعليق معد المقابلة فيه الكثير من السخرية حين علق " اه توكلوهم بسنانكم وانتو هاربين" لكن انا اقول له كما قال المثل الفلسطيني " اللي تحت العصي مش زي اللي بعد فيهن"
