Panel Discussion and Exhibition, organized by Heinrich Böll Stiftung Middle East on June 28, 2018

 

 

Around half a million persons are estimated to have disappeared in the Syria war so far and similarly, thousands of people have disappeared during the Lebanese civil war. Their disappearance is affecting both societies leaving families with open wounds as they struggle with uncertainty about their loved ones’ plight.

Noura Ghazi, Lawyer & Families for Freedom member 

George Ghali, Executive Director, Alef, Act for Human Rights 

Anna Fleischer, Advocacy and Communications Manager Women Now for Development 

Moderated by:

Jorn Decock, Journalist based in Beirut

 

The evening will open with the exhibition “Damascus Road: The plight of political detainees in Syria through their portraits” introduced by Monika Borgmann, UMAM Research and Documentation and will include a live testimony by former Lebanese prisoner, Ali Abou Dehn, who was detained in Syria’s infamous Tadmor prison.

 

There will be simultaneous translation English / Arabic.

The event will be followed by a reception.

The entrance is free of charge.
