monument street


the crisis in syria is not simply a humanitarian crisis; it’s also a cultural one. these attacks are erasing over 4000 years of the rich history that can be found in aleppo—buildings, artifacts, monuments, the very streets themselves.

if we sit back silently or turn a blind eye, we are not only losing thousands of innocent lives to bombings, suicide, and rape, but also one of the most important unesco heritage sites in the entire world.

it’s horrifying to think that this many lives and this much history is being erased by the hour.
