I come from there, by Mahmoud Darwish, is taken from poemhunter.com. Published collections of Darwish poems in translation include: The Butterfly’s Burden, trans. Fady Joudah (Bloodaxe Books, 2020); If I Were Another, trans. Fady Joudah (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011); and Unfortunately, It Was Paradise, trans.,ed. Munir Akash and Carolyn Forché, with Sinan Antoon and Amira El-Zein (University of California Press, 2003).
The site references and details of the events that took place in the individual villages have been compiled in collaboration with Noga Kadman, researcher and expert on the 1948 villages, and author of Erased from Space and Consciousness: Israel and the Depopulated Palestinian Villages of 1948 (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2015).
Information has been gathered from the sources listed in the bibliography opposite, which offer the reader comprehensive evaluations of the events surrounding the war of 1948 and the transformations these events wrought upon the land.

NOTES ON TRANSLITERATION
The transliteration system used in Memory Trace gives preference to the phonetic pronunciation of words, and favors common parlance over historical or literary usage (for example: Bisān and not Baysān), so as to better indicate the essence of the language as it is used today. The system does not distinguish between letters that have similar pronunciation as far as the foreign speaker is concerned (for example the letter S stands for both س and ص). When an official spelling of the name of a person, place, or institution contradicts this system, deference has been made to that which is in common usage, and therefore most accessible.
