Children's stories from Syria   Iraq   Ukraine   Iran

…»Where do you come from?«
»From the wide world.«
»Where do you want to go?«
»Where is your home?«
»Where is my home? I do not know.«…

— Janusz Korczak: Little King Matty and the Desert Island

There has been an ongoing war in Syria since 2011.
Nearly three million people have fled the country so far – especially
into the neighbouring countries of Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
In May 2014 I spoke with a number of Syrian children at the Turkish-Syrian border
and photographed them.
My thanks go to D Tamador Alomar for her support of this project.
