The Syrian Refugee Crisis with Diego Cupolo and Rahawa Haile
(June 17, 2014 | Brooklyn, NY, USA) – Join Diego Cupolo freelance journalist, photographer and author of “Seven Syrians: War Accounts From Syrian Refugees” and Rahawa Haile for a presentation and discussion on the Syrian Conflict, June 17th, 2014 19:00 at the WORD Bookshop, 126 Franklin Street, Brooklyn, New York.

"A voice is missing from the international debate on the Syrian War. Throughout the conflict, world leaders have focused discussions on chemical weapons and radical fundamentalists while the Syrian people, civilians and refugees remain effectively absent from the conversation. Yet, as the war continues without foreseeable end, the simple truth is Syrians are dying and whether through bombs or sarin gas, the largest portion of the casualties are civilian.”
The book presents the personal experiences of seven Syrian refugees, providing readers with eyewitness accounts of the protests that led to the Syrian war, the violence that followed, and the journeys undertaken by thousands of civilians to flee their homeland in search of safety in neighboring countries. Photo portraits of the storytellers glare back from the book's pages as tales of impossible struggles unfold and bring attention to the most serious refugee crisis the world has seen in 20 years.
SEVEN SYRIANS: War Accounts from Syrian Refugees by Diego Cupolo; 86 pages; $18.88. January 2014. Full-Color.
