Childhood memories: Tell us yours

On July 11, 2014 by admin

Lost in Thought

“When we were little, we played hide and seek with all the kids from different neighbourhoods without caring where they came from or who their families were. We’d argue over who cheated and who won, but we always came back the next day to play together again.”

What places do you associate with your childhood? Who were the people in your life? Do you remember listening to certain sounds, or looking at certain pictures? Was there a game you played over and over again?

Qisetna: Talking Syria is collecting childhood memories of Syria. If there is a moment, a person or a place that stands out to you, we would love to hear from you. Just email talkingsyria [at] with your story or write to us via our online form. If you would like to write for us but are not sure how to go about it, we can provide guidance.

Completed stories will be published on our non-political blog platform and shared via social media. As well as collecting the work of writers, we hope the blog will provide a richer understanding of Syria and inclusive Syrian culture.
