Title: Civilizationally, we do not dig holes to bury ourselves

Attributed date: 1958-1959

Attributed to: Dr Fadl Fakhouri

This document is attributed to Dr. Fadl Fakhouri, one of Lebanon's leading historians.  The historian donated 226 notebooks, 2 shorts films, and 24 black and white photographs to The Atlas Group in the early 1990s.

The only available photographs of Dr Fakhouri consist of 24 black-and-white self-portraits that were found in a small brown envelope titled, Civilizationally, we do not dig holes to bury ourselves. The historian produced the photographs in 1958 and 1959 during his one and only trip outside of Lebanon, to Paris and Rome.
