Storyboard Text

  • January 21, 2011 (Homs, Syria)
  • Life in Homs
  • March 15th, 2011
  • I used to live in a big beautiful house on the outskirts of Homs, the capital of Syria. My family was very happy, my father was a doctor and my mother was a lawyer. My older brother Hassan and I would play with our friends after school in the park sometimes, everything was perfect.
  • May 23rd, 2011
  • My best friend Jamila and I loved to hang out with each other. I used to go to her house for sleepovers almost every weekend, and after school, she would often come to my house.
  • Leaving
  • One day, mum came home from work and told us that a war had started in Homs, and it was spreading throughout Syria. She was very worried, but dad said it was probably nothing.
  • Refugee Camp
  • I still remember that morning when I walked into the cafertia, Jamila wasn't there. I heard her cousin say that her family had fleed across the border in the middle of the night. That's when I knew the war was serious.
  • Two weeks later, mum told me to pack all my things, because she said it was time to go.We had already experienced several bombing, one of which hit close to my cousin's house, killing her and her family. I was terrified of what was going to happen, but I tried to be brave. Mum said we would only be gone for a while, so I just packed a few pairs of clothes.
  • We arrived at a place called a 'refugee camp', where white tents were sprawled everywhere, we were assigned tent 304. As Hassan was getting water one day, a bomb struck from the ground and he died, mum was distraught, she knelt to the ground and cried bitterly, hugging Hassan to her body.
