Salah Mansour is the founder and manager of PalestineRemembered.com, a non-profit website based in the USA. Currently, it’s the largest online community for Palestinian refugees on the internet (with over 12,000 registered members). This article is also available on the PalestineRemembered.com website.
Since PalestineRemembered.com’s* inception in 2000 - the largest online community for Palestinian refugees on the internet - we have been looking for documented resources for Palestinian history & culture, especially for events pertaining to Nakba, but very little was found or available. Consequently, it became apparently clear that oral history is the only tool left to solve this problem. We also recognized that we should react quickly, otherwise, it could be too late since our refugee population, especially those who survived the Nakba, are aging quickly, and their memory could be lost forever.
