The destruction of Palmyra by ISIS led to an international outcry and social media frenzy; images of piles of disjointed architecture became clickbait, and all the international media outlets talked about the destruction – but little talk was about the people from Palmyra. Nobody mentioned the possibility of giving concrete support to the people of Palmyra, with its 80 thousand inhabitants.
On June 23rd we will virtually visit Palmyra with Syrian archaeologist and co-founder of the Palmyrene Voices Initiative, Dr. Isber Sabrine. Register here and learn about this historic site preceding attacks by Daesh (ISIS) in 2015, and what’s being done to restore and protect it.
