"Syrien - Erinnerungen an ein Land vor dem Krieg" - Live-Reportage

Spoken word Vortrag Reisevortrag / Reise
In the organizer's words:

Syria is located at the intersection of the former Incense and Silk Road. This has always made the country a hinge between the Orient and the Occident, making it home to different cultures and peoples. In order to document the diverse everyday life, the magnificent architecture of Palmyra, the souk of Aleppo, the streets of Damascus, the Mediterranean coast and Mesopotamia, the photojournalist, author and Islamic scholar Lutz Jäkel traveled to Syria again and again over the course of 20 years. Then, in March 2011, demonstrations and uprisings broke out, culminating in a war that continues to this day and has irreparably destroyed much. Almost half of the population has fled, and hundreds of thousands have lost their lives. With his look into the past, Lutz Jäkel dares to build a bridge between melancholy and confidence and gives the Syrian people dignified memories of their culturally rich homeland. Deeply moving!
