13 April: Addressing the scars of war

11 July 2019

Every 13 April, Lebanon commemorates the painful memory of the start of the 15-year-long civil war that raged from 1975 until 1990.

The war left thousands of civilians wounded and thousands others missing. This year, we went down to the streets of Beirut and asked the Lebanese about the scars of the war.

Who is a missing person? Do the families of the missing have the right to know? How would you imagine the life of someone who was wounded during the war?
