Dheeb Najarja (95 years old from Nahalin) interviewed by Azizah Ghayada.
He discusses the following: Ottoman and British periods; because of the injustice from Turkey people were extremely poor and used to pick the barley out of animal dung to eat; locusts and the lack of rain; when the British came they distributed food. Bethlehem was empty of men because so many had run away to avoid conscription.
