Not so long ago, Eid al-Adha was a time of festivity for them too. Like other Muslims around the world, Syrian refugees looked forward for the fun family get-togethers, delicious barbecues and special sweets.
The whole world is treating us like animals. We are Syrians. Syria used to be a very proud nation once upon a time
Ehab Ali Naser, a 23 year-old Syrian refugee, holds a 12 day-old baby at a makeshift camp on a street, northern Paris, France, September 16, 2015. Ehab, in Paris for a month, arrived after an 18-month journey that started in his hometown of Homs, Syria, where he was a vendor at the souk. He spent a year in Lebanon, then travelled to Algeria and Morocco before he arrived in the Spanish port of Melila, and then headed to France. Currently he lives in a tent in a small refugee camp along a busy boulevard on the outskirts of Paris. Ehab has always dreamt of becoming a singer and one day his path crosses with that of a French producer, writer and composer visiting the refugee camp at Porte de Saint Ouen, who gives him the chance to try out his voice in a professional music studio.
