Brothers in Syria
This illustrated album is not just another book about war.
It is the story of two brothers,
of a bombardment, of a devastated city,
of a devastated family.
It is an illustrated album that wants to be the chronicle
of what wars mean, that wants to be a cry,
the cry of the surviving brother:
Enough already! Stop this war!
