Memoirs of locals: daily life under the Lebanese Civil War

๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ง Lebanon

Over 15 years, residents of Lebanon endured the war in many varied ways, yet they are all bound by commonalities: be it stories of survival, resistance, or immigration, authors express loss, fond memories, and a complicated love-hate relationship with their homeland. Their individual stories often evoke universal feelings, and provide the personal lens through which they understood their surroundings (or didnโ€™t).
