These Are The Stories Of 15 Fallen Syrians

"We want the violence and bloodshed to end. We want to go back to the roots of the revolution, which was freedom."

As the Syrian conflict's three-year anniversary approaches, Amal Hanano, a Syrian activist based in the US, wanted to honor the memories of those killed. So the Aleppo-native started the 100,000 Names campaign. On March 14, Hanano will lead a 72-hour-long recitation on the White House lawn of 100,000 names of those killed in Syria. "We want the violence and bloodshed to end," Hanano told BuzzFeed. "We want to go back to the roots of the revolution, which was freedom." Hanano collected the names from the Violations Documentation Center in Syria, as well as Syrian activists and the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. In the 15 days leading up to the anniversary, she has also been tweeting portraits, drawn by journalist Molly Crabapple, of Syrians killed in the conflict. Here are the faces, names, and stories of 15 fallen Syrian citizens.
