Christians were a primary target for ISIS, who had driven away Assyrians and Armenians from their homes in Nineveh Province. As a result, an artist launched an exhibition in Erbil which seeks to commemorate their displacement and suffering under ISIS rule.
Alaa al-Khader is an 18-year old Syrian artist who was displaced from Aleppo to the city of al-Bab. Her art was recently displayed in an art exhibition held by the Qeeam Cultural Foundation, a foundation that was forcefully displaced from Homs in early 2017.
In an attempt to motivate students in their quest for knowledge, a scientific exhibition was held in the Hazanu School in western Aleppo. This initiative is the first of its kind amidst war and hardship.
