70,000 Palestinian books were systematically "collected" by the newly created State of Israel during the 1948 war. The story of the "collected" books is at the heart of our film. 

The Great Book Robbery is also a multifaceted cultural heritage project. Share your knowledge. If you know people whose libraries were "collected" or any other information concerning this historical event - be it documents, pictorial material, or home movies - and if you want to share your thoughts on the film please contact us
