Long, well-written piece about a Syrian now living in Germany. Very thoughtful examination of the problems facing people trying to adjust in Europe, with family still in Syria. Also good detail on circumstances in Syria, including the siege of Moadamiya. (The writer, Matthew McNaught, also wrote a good piece for N+1 called "Yarmouk Miniatures," about studying Arabic in Syria just before the war.) [posted by Zora]
