The George Harb Project

Published on (GMT) by Freja Howat-Maxted
The George Harb Project is part of the Planet Bethlehem Archive. The project documents the life and career of George Harb, a renowned educator, politician, speech-maker and community activist in Bethlehem. The project consists mainly of photographs of George, his family and other prominent figures in Bethlehem from the 1920s up to the present day. _____________________________________________________________________ The materials in the project were donated to the Planet Bethlehem Archive by George Harb who today lives in Bethlehem. As an elected member of the Bethlehem Municipal Council for 18 years and teacher of Arabic at the Frères school (the first in the region to go co-ed), George Harb was first-hand witness to the major political and social upheavals of the latter half of the 20th century in Bethlehem. The photographs in the project also document more intimate, personal scenes such as family portraits, weddings and social gatherings. _____________________________________________________________________ The project currently consists of a single collection called George Harb Photos.
