Understanding the Syrian Crisis

Tima Kurdi, the aunt of Alan Kurdi, gave a very moving and thought provoking talk at an event sponsored by Temple Students for Justice in Palestine. Her nephew, Alan Kurdi, was the toddler we saw laying dead on a Turkish beach in the now iconic photograph that shows the human tragedy of the Syrian war in one of its most purest and visceral forms. She was part of a panel whose purpose was to deepen our understanding of the complexities of the Syrian conflict and its effects on the Syrian people.
