“Let us work together to replace despair with HOPE, fear with human SECURITY and humiliation with DIGNITY”

Tawfiq Zuraiq

Tawfiq bin Anastas Zuraiq was a writer and a journalist from Tripoli in the Levant. During World War I, he was detained by the Ottomans for accusations of criticizing the government through letters he published prior to the war in a newsletter issued by his brother, Anton, in America. He was sentenced at the office of customary war in Alia and was later hanged alongside his brother in Damascus.
