Sabah Ali, a curator and artist who participated in the exhibition, said that artists of different ages took part in the exhibition, who personify the suffering of the Yazidi minority of the Afrin region, murders, displacement, as well as the embodiment of hopes for returning to their villages and homes. Every painting in the exhibition embodies someone's real story.

Shelan Aju, the youngest Yazidi girl participating in the exhibition, who is only 12 years old, said that from childhood she remembers how she was relocated from her city of Afrin. The girl says that she wanted to embody her memories of displacement as much as possible in her paintings.

This is the second exhibition of its kind organized by artists in the al-Shahba district, which sheltered displaced persons from the city of Afrin.
