University Libraries Exhibit: “The Emergence of Greater Lebanon”

The AUB University Libraries are glad to announce an exhibit entitled “The Emergence of Greater Lebanon". 

The primary sources displayed in this exhibition were retrieved from a collection donated by Hikmat Kassir to the AUB University Libraries. 

The exhibit is both, virtual and physical:   

  • The physical exhibit, which was previously postponed due to COVID restrictions, will be on display in the main lobby at Jafet Library from November 1st till the 30th. 
  • The online exhibit can be accessed on-campus only via this link:   

The showcased documents are mostly related to the Peace Conference. Also, in an attempt to focus on the few days before and after the declaration, Claims for Territorial Attachment and Independence and other documents from the Arab World towards Tutorship are showcased, along with the Reactions after the Declaration of Greater Lebanon. 

Also, in this exhibition are some documents related to the Beirut-Damascus Railway Company, during that same period and a movie that also illustrates the period.
