Now that another Christmas has passed, looking back at how Syrians lived through it returns a bleak image. One of Syrians caught up between the military conflict, the open prisons and the refugee camps. This image is, as every other aspect of the Syrian tragedy, depicted by Syrians through very graphic and intense forms of art.
What happens to your Syrian identity now that you are living in a new country? How is your identity affected by the new country’s respective integration policies? Implicit in each of these questions is the notion of identity as a monolithic concept linked to nationality. The reality is never so simple.
