Beit Beirut not only offers a glimpse of the civil war, but it’s also a place that highlights the importance of preserving the Lebanese heritage.
This house was occupied by snipers during the civil war. Now, it’s a peaceful place where Lebanese people from different backgrounds meet and reflect on the past which divided the nation.
Beit Beirut is a symbol of overcoming the struggles of the past by offering a common understanding of the civil war to the visitors.
