Martyrs of the Lebanese Communist Party

March 1975 - March 1976

(poem text in lower right)

I don't know them

But in them I know my way 

And the card of my party  

In them I know my people

I don't know them 

But in them I know my time

In them I know my homeland.

(text at bottom)

They were martyred in the battle against the fascist isolationist scheme while defending Lebanon, its unity, its Arab identity and the Palestinian resistance
