(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) LEBANESE MINISTER OF CULTURE, MOHAMED DAOUD, SAYING: "People feel pressured by the economy and by other aspects of living. It is hard on the Lebanese people and I believe this is an opportunity, it is like opening a window to breath a bit of clean cultural air." VARIOUS OF VISITORS INSIDE LEBANESE NATIONAL MUSEUM VISITOR, ABEER ZAYTOUN, WITH CHILDREN AND RELATIVES CHECKING EXHIBITS (SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) SCHOOL SUPERVISOR VISITING LEBANESE NATIONAL MUSEUM, ABEER ZAYTOUN, SAYING: "In Lebanon, we have a big problem with history. Maybe because we feel our modern history is a lie so we hate history. A lot of people say: "Why history? Why study history at school?" It shocks me. It really frustrates me. In the outside world, people are really proud (of their history) and they make a big deal out of the most trivial things, I'm sorry to say this. They create something big out of something that is a 100 years old. But for us, if we just read the (value) of the dates, we realize the extraordinary depth of history that we have and unfortunately, how much we do not appreciate it."

They are learning a lot about it at school.''
