630 - Traces of war turned into a wall of art and hope in Damascus

By Heidi Trautmann

Damascus as it was is no more, the beautiful architecture and culture of many centuries have been erased and covered with the debris of a brother war. The atmosphere I have so often admired, a unique world heritage….when I think of it; I feel sad and desperate.

However, as I learnt from Syrians, some live here in Cyprus, a handful of artists in Damascus have in an unbelievable effort used the debris of war to decorate walls of their city.

There is not much to say, the pictures speak for themselves but …our respect and thank you for giving humanity some hope back.
