"What Do You Miss Most?: Syrian Refugees Respond"

Friday, December 20, 2013

Rochelle Davis, professor of Arab Studies at Georgetown and someone I'm lucky to have worked for and consider a mentor to this day, published a piece in Jadaliyya last week called "What Do You Miss Most?: Syrian Refugees Respond", based on interviews she conducted earlier this year with Syrian refugees in Jordan and Lebanon.

The refugees' responses include recollections ranging from everyday mundane scenes to the horrific, and offer a poignant glimpse of what they have lost forever and what—no matter the horrors they endure—they will never lose.

I was honored to be able to provide some of the photos accompanying the piece, which date back to the idyllic summer that I spent in Syria and that I still remember with such nostalgia.

Give it a read.
