They were normal people: poets, artists, painters, lawyers, writers and farmers.  These are faces of Baalbeck, faces that are gone – they died natural deaths, as fighters, or martyrs for Lebanese nation, and sometimes of other causes, not known to us.

We knew them and lived with them, now we remember them.
