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 breathtaking 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 an unforgettable 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." -- Publisher's website
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
