Israelis sit at the National Library of Israel on the Givat Ram campus of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem on January 3, 2013. As war came to Jerusalem in May 1948, Palestinians had to flee their homes, leaving behind hundreds of books which now sit in a basement at Israel's National Library. They are part of a collection of around 30,000 books, marked 'AP' -- 'abandoned property' -- and accessible only by special request.
