My grandfather Joseph Haidar was from Deir Mimas but went to Germany and then German East Africa in about 1903. My father, Paul Louis Haidar and his six other brothers and sisters were born in Dar es Salaam. He and his brothers Albert and Earnest were educated in Lebanon. They would spend their school holidays in Deir Mimas. My father went to the AUB, his studies were interrupted by the Second World War, but he graduated as a Pharmacist in 1947. He later practiced/opened a business in Tanganyika/Tanzania and was at one time the President of the Tanganyika Pharmacy and Poisons Board. I have visited Deir Mimas on two occasions, however I don't believe I have any relatives still there.
