Salman H. Abu Sitta (1938- ) is a Palestinian researcher and writes about Palestinian refugees and Palestinian right of return to Palestine. He is a refugee himself, born in Bir al-Saba’, during British Mandate of Palestine. He is the author of over 300 articles and papers and several books on refugees, Nakba and Right of Return including “The Atlas of Palestine 1948″, 2005, “The Right of Return”, 2007 and “From Refugees to Citizens at Home”, 2001 and “The Atlas of Palestine 1917-1966″, 2010. He is a member of Palestine National Council, founder and President of the Palestine Land Society (PLS) and General coordinator of Right of Return Congress. He has spent 40 years digging for any detail of information about, or related to, Palestine before, during and after the creation of Israel. His self-imposed mission has encompassed not only documenting Al-Nakba , but also ensuring that “the memories and identity of the occupied homeland are never lost”. The documentation process began when he was 30 years-old, when he stumbled on the memoirs of the Turkish chief of Beersheba, when Palestine was under Ottoman rule. “It sort of started from there, and it has never stopped,” Abu-Sitta says. “I kept collecting all and any material on every inch of my homeland.”
