Since 2012, the disaster of the civil war in Syria marks a break with the past of this city, where Muslims, Christians and Jews had been peacefully with each other for more than a thousand years.Through over 100 ancient illustrations, mostly unprecedented, the great historian Dr. Philip Mansel demonstrates that cosmopolitanism was the foundation of Aleppo’s prosperity in a discussion with a journalist.
Thursday, March 18, at 19 pm
