More Amiriyah info needed...

Dear Friends:

As some of you may know, I am currently writing a major research paper on 
the Amiriyah/Al Firdos bombing.  I am trying to reconstruct the history that 
led to this tragedy as well as the events of this particular event with as 
much accuracy as possible.

I am writing to each of you to request information and leads on source 
material.  The usual scholarly resources appear scanty: Al Firdos is 
mentioned in several places, but has, to my knowledge, never been the 
primary topic of anything in the academic press.

Here's what I need from you, if you have acces to it:

*copies of all photos, videos, interviews, etc. relating to the shelter, its 
caretakers, etc.  I can arrange to have you re-imbursed for copying and 
postage expenses if you need me to.

*information on Al Firdos's construction: what Western European firms made 
Amiriyah?  I would like to contact them and see if I can get one of their 
floorplans for the shelter.

*Most importantly, I'd like to interview as many of you who've visited Al 
Firdos as possible.  It is through these interviews that I'd like to base 
the reconstruction of events on.  If you would like to send me an account of 
your visit(s) to Al Firdos, that would be a very helpful starting point to 
start the reconstruction from.

I plan on making copies of my paper (probably in the range of 25-50 pages) 
available to all who would find it helpful.  I'm also going to present to 
publicly here at Western Washington University through the anthropology 
department at the end of this term.

Thanks again,

Charlie Brown
