Help me to give Mosul the Knowledge it deserves!

“Let it Be a Book, Rising from the Ashes” – Mosul Eye

Mosul’s many libraries used to be housing the most precious and valuable manuscripts and rare prints in the region, and its libraries used to be the destination for anyone who’s looking for those treasures. And in a devastating assault on the humanity heritage in Mosul, ISIL devastated Mosul’s libraries, among the devastation it inflicted on the city, wrecking those libraries by stealing, destroying and burning those treasures, under different excuses. Once as “useless science”, another as “Illegitimate science”, and last but not least, “blasphemous books”!
The only copy of Encyclopaedia of Islam in Mosul was destroyed by ISIS when they destroyed the library. Help me to give Mosul a copy of E.J. Brill’s First Encyclopaedia of Islam, 1913-1936
