“Tens of Thousands” exhibition

“Tens of Thousands” is an exhibition curated by Amnesty International in Beirut marking the International Day of the Disappeared on 30 August. It aims to shed light on the issue of the missing and disappeared inside Syria through emblematic cases of Syrian individuals arbitrarily detained and abducted for exercising peaceful human rights activities. The individuals whose stories are featured in the exhibition are peaceful activists, human rights defenders, lawyers and humanitarian workers.

The exhibition features items left behind by these individuals, and what these items now mean to their loved ones.

The exhibition also features poems written by Syrian poets and writers describing their experience in Syrian detention facilities, as well as a collection of portraits by Syrian artist Azza Abou Rebieh, of women detainees she had been detained with.

“Tens of Thousands” is open from 30 August to 6 September – 12 pm to 7 pm at Station Beirut
