The conflict in Syria, now in its tenth year, has triggered the worst humanitarian crisis in modern history. Syrians make up the largest refugee and displaced population from a single conflict anywhere in the world. They had to flee their homes within their country and across the world to seek safety. Hundreds of thousands are now in Europe, but the vast majority of refugees, more than 5.5 million people, live in displacement in neighbouring countries in the region.
Behind those numbers are human lives. This exhibition sheds light on the Syrians, but also the Iraqis, Jordanians and Lebanese, whose lives have been suspended by the war in Syria. Their stories reveal extraordinary resilience and determination to carry on, and hope in a better future.
