Syria – Before and After Photo Series
Syria – This before and after photo series perfectly summarizes what war can do to a city, to a country and to its people. It shows the horrors that war brings no matter the cause you are fighting for. War should be a thing of the past by now, in our modern day society, but, however, some people still prefer destroying rather than building…
These photos were taken in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, before and after the war. Aleppo is one of the cities which had the most to suffer since the ‘Battle of Aleppo’ began in 2012. The Syrian Civil War left its mark forever on this once beautiful city. So many sides are fighting each other in Syria that by now, almost no one knows who they should be loyal to. In order to better understand the Syrian Civil War, check out who’s fighting whom in Syria and why.
Olympia Restaurant still calls Aleppo home and with this before and after photo series of Syria, they plan on showing the whole world how beautiful their city was before all the bombing started. People should refuse to fight from now on, and as one very interesting article suggests, going to war should be optional.
War leads only to pain and suffering. Wars destroy countries and kill people. War can’t bring anything good to a place. Not in this lifetime, not in the future! The sooner we learn to deal with all our problems in a peaceful way, the better. Achieving world peace is possible in our lifetime, we just have to put some efforts into raising awareness on the benefits of not fighting.
As a brilliant mind once said, ‘fighting for peace is like f*cking for virginity!’. Check out the Olympia Restaurant official Facebook fan page for more before and after photos of Aleppo.
