The Memories Museum of Dr. Mohammed al-Khatib

In the midst of one of the many cramped and crowded alleyways of Beirut’s Shatila refugee camp, close to qa’at al-sha’ab, or the people’s hall, is a brown metal door leading to a ground-floor apartment and the relatively unknown museum of 66-year-old Mohammed al-Khatib, who collected  1,000 personal objects  from Palestinians who fled the 1947-48 ethnic cleansing by Zionist forces.
