About the  Project


The "Memories from Syria" project is produced by Rethink Rebuild Society and funded by the Building a Stronger Britain Together programme. It documents through video extremely compelling stories of Syrian refugees regarding their experiences in war, the immense tragedies and dangers that forced them to leave their country, why they chose to come to the UK, and how they have been contributing to their new society as refugees. Using the voice of Syrians themselves, the project thus promotes a positive alternative discourse surrounding the Syrian refugee experience, dispels common misconceptions, and tackles the climate of xenophobia in which extremist narratives thrive.
