Clay sculptures commemorate Gaza war victims

Clay sculptures commemorate Gaza war victims 

Clay sculptures representing the victims of the latest Israeli-Palestinian conflict were erected in the ruins of Gaza’s Al-Shejaya district. 
The artwork was designed by Palestinian artist Iyad Sabbah to commemorate the victims of the latest war with Israel. Al-Shejaya district, one of Gaza's poorest and most crowded neighborhoods, 
faced especially heavy bombing during the conflict. IDF’s 'Operation Protective Edge' began on July 8, 2014 and lasted 50 days. 
More than 2,100 Palestinians were killed, the vast majority of whom, according to the UN, were civilians - including over 500 children.

Human beings are members of a whole, 
In creation of one essence and soul. 
If one member is afflicted with pain, 
Other members uneasy will remain. 

If you have no sympathy for human pain, 
The name of human you cannot retain. 

 - Saadi - 
Persian poet

The legendary piano of Yarmouk

The legendary piano of Yarmouk 

Someday the Palestinians and Syrians who survived the war will 
tell stories about what happened in Yarmouk. People will recall 
how they ate grass to remain alive during the siege. In survivors’ collective memory, Aeham and his piano will live. In the future, 
some might say Aeham’s piano was a legend.
