Summary
Based on interviews with hundreds of displaced Syrians conducted over four years across the Middle East and Europe, We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled is a mosaic of first-hand testimonials from the frontlines. Some of the testimonies are several pages long, eloquent narratives that could stand alone as short stories; others are only a few sentences, poetic and aphoristic. Together, they cohere into a chronicle that is not only a testament to the power of storytelling but to the strength of those who face darkness with hope, courage, and moral conviction
Summary
Chronicles the lives of ordinary Syrians during the 2011 Arab Spring through the ensuing civil war and resulting humanitarian catastrophe, based on the first-hand testimonies of displaced citizens who face their uncertain future with hope, courage and conviction
