Grand Finale - The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War by Ammar Habib

In an over-politicized world, my wish is for this work to humanize those we call “refugees”. The Heart of Aleppo is not about the politics of the Syrian Civil War or any other conflict. Its aim is not to convince readers to support any faction or political party. Instead, this story is about the unbreakable spirit of humanity. It is about how humanity often shows its true strength during the darkest times. . .Launch - Why Ammar wrote The Heart of Aleppo
