Habib Battah is a Lebanese journalist and blogger. One day, walking the streets of an area of Beirut called Clemenceau, he spied a rather handsome low-rise house of the type that is becoming increasingly rare in the city, where redevelopment is proceeding apace.
Battah hurriedly took pictures - an activity that often invites suspicion. "Do you know whom the house belonged to?" a woman sitting in traffic, watching him, called out: Beatrice Levy, in her 80s or 90s, who now lives in Paris. The woman was a neighbour.
Now that the Jewish community of Lebanon is almost extinct, it is heartening know there are still physical reminders of their presence.
