ID, Please is a two-part video series that explores heritage in relation to identity.

Significant loss of historical sites and artefacts is heartbreaking for anyone, but what about those who had direct links to the tangible remains?

Episode one explores identity problems that arise when heritage destruction occurs, focusing on the civil war in Syria.

In episode two, the pieces are put back together as heritage preservation as a powerful tool to rebuild a sense of identity is explained.

A tale of two cities: Za’atari refugee camp and the village on the other side

A tale of two cities: Za’atari refugee camp and the village on the other side

When Za’atari refugee camp opened in Jordan in 2012, its population was in the hundreds. With thousands of refugees crossing the border each night, the camp doubled in size almost immediately and continued to grow at an alarming rate. Today, Za’atari is one of the largest refugee camps in the world, and a temporary home for over 80,000 refugees forced to flee the ongoing violence in Syria. Less well known, and less than a kilometre from the camp, is a village of the same name.
