The Syrian Civil War Takes a Grim New Turn

At 3 Generations we have been recording the stories of Syrian refugees since 2013. We are proud of our coverage of this human rights catastrophe which includes award-winning short and feature films.

And yet, the Syrian Civil War has now entered a perilous new phase both in Syria and neighboring countries.  Turkey recently launched attacks against the Kurdish forces who had been helping US and coalition forces fight ISIS and their caliphate. The abandonment of the Kurds is a tragic development. Not only are they the largest stateless ethnic group on earth, they have been brave allies, instrumental in the curtailing of ISIS. And, closer to our recent work at 3 Generations, they have helped buffer the genocide against the Yazidi minority in Northern Iraq and Syria.

Throughout 2019 we have been gathering stories of Yazidi women forced into slavery by ISIS. These brutal and heart-breaking stories will be appear on our new website in the coming weeks. Please look for them and support our work by helping us keep filming, editing and producing stories from the frontlines of one of the worst humanitarian disasters of the 21st century.

Your support makes this vital work possible. 

We thank you, and so do the survivors who have honored us with these devastating stories. Stories we have been sharing for the past seven years.
