1.Michael Nathanson reply: Dear Mahmoud and friends,

Finally, I was able to purchase a copy thru Amazon and will receive it soon. I read your introduction to the book on line and have a true sense of your agonizing over the history and fate of your covillagers in particular and of the Palestinians as a whole. Having travelled through the Galilee prior to 1948 I too mourn the destruction of many of the villages and with it of Palestinian society. Again, I congratulate you for succeeding to republish the book in many languages so that its readership may increase and your massage spread around. If only it could be translated into Hebrew…
All the best
Michael

Super! Til lykke!
 
Jeg håber, du i øvrigt har det godt trods Coronaen. Selv var jeg sammen med en smittet kollega i onsdags (før hun fik symptomer), så der er en god chance for, at jeg selv får den også. Øv! Men ellers går det da meget godt.
 
Bedste hilsener,

Dear Mahmoud

Wow. Congratulations. Eight languages! How did you do that. We may learn something. Never came out in more than 2 languages.

Best wishes. Ingrid

4. Nadia 

Great achievement. Congratulations Mahmoud.

Dear Mahmoud,

Congratulations! Finally out and in many languages. How important is this job to circulate this history, your history. The story of one person, one family, and one village often tell us more than that of one nation or one army.  
Sending you love in a time of turmoil.

الف مبروك ِ عمل رائع. شهاده ضد الظلم التاريخي الذي حاق بقريه لوبيا . لعله يجلب بعض العداله للمظلومين الذين ينتظرون حلول العداله يوما. واولها معرفه الحقيقه التي هي شرط التحرر
 
لوبيا وفلسطين. الجليل وجبل عامل والجولان. يفتخرون بك. محمود عيسى.

 Lubya Monograph is covering the historiography, culture and identity of a Palestinian village, Lubya, demolished in 1948, uprooting and dispersing all its population; nowadays residing in thirteen different countries in the four corners of the world. To erase the witnesses and the debris of the houses, a huge green forest called “South African Forest” is planted to bury the last remnants and cover up the horrible crime of the demolishment. Around 3500 people were living in Lubya before the Nakba in 1948; nowadays, they are almost 50.000.

The main method used to reconstruct the historiography of Lubya – the biggest in Tiberias district, and the second in Galilee- is qualitative interviews with the elderly generation, supported by archival documents in Jerusalem, Nazareth, London; diaries, newspaper articles and historical references. Young Lubyan generation living in exile were interviewed as well to follow their aspirations, livelihood, identity question, integration and their dreams of return.  Table of contents cover a forward, by Ilan Pape, a preface and an introduction, ten chapters, conclusions and thirteen appendices:
