The Great War in Palestine: Dr Tawfiq Canaan’s Photographic Album
ABSTRACT
The year 2014 marks the centenary of WWI, called by the British until today “the Great War.” For the history of Palestine this was indeed a great and decisive war.
A marvelous documentation of World War I is a photo album found among the belongings of the late Israeli archeologist Pesah Baradon.1
The album has no owner’s name, but without much doubt it seems to have belonged to the famous Palestinian physician Dr. Tawfiq Canaan.
