The Grand Famine in Lebanon: Amnesia or Occulted Memory?

During the First World War, many people died in Greater Syria than anywhere else in the world. In Mount Lebanon, a semi-autonomous province of the Ottoman Empire, one third of the population died of famine and diseases.

This event, hosted by the Institute of History of the Faculty of Letters, took place on Thursday, February 22, 2018, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., in the Auditorium of Building B.
