Description: 
This oral history project is led by Professor Slim with her students to collect the oral histories of people from all parts of Lebanon who share stories of support and solidarity during the Lebanese civil war years. Many of these stories involve people in need during the war and those who opened their homes to them. This project shows that even during the war and violent times, many citizens helped each other, based on beautiful stories that Slim heard from individuals who were very active on an individual level or through non-governmental organizations and played a key role in peacemaking during the war.
