Life in war has a different meaning – there is no more normal.

The daily routine is certainly not normal, even if it is, indeed, a routine. Bombs fall, people die, and buildings are destroyed every day. Civilians are caught in the middle, suffering silently from the effects of this horrific war, but doing their best to resist its bitterness.

The reality of war cannot be denied, yet some people are determined to overcome its harshness.

War notes spans various Syrian regions and a decade, documenting the struggle of civilians and children to live, despite some of the world’s cruellest conditions.

The series pays particular attention to the war-torn areas of Eastern Ghouta near the capital of Damascus, besieged by Syrian government forces for more than nine years. The siege finally ended after nearly the entire region was levelled.

The remaining population was forcibly resettled in displacement camps, where more than four million Syrians currently live.
