My little Sister’s Childhood in Edlib

May Abdulfattah, Syria / Turkey

My family and I are refugees in Turkey, because the war destroyed our city of Edlib, but we love it because it is our home. We visit Edlib, our city when the Turkish authorities allow us. During the Eid Holiday in 2017, my family and I visited our city, and took this picture of my little sister in the midst of destruction. I chose to take a picture of my sister in this place so that the world would see that the bad face of war could be erased by the image of a child in Eid clothes. May Abdulfattah
