ELENA DORFMAN

Ziad, fourteen, lives in the Za’atari refugee camp, in Jordan, with his family. Asked about his present situation, he recited a poem: “The spring was green, and its fragrance spread because it was watered with the martyr’s blood.” He hopes to become a teacher, and studies at a mosque in the camp. He’s made friends with people with whom he plays soccer, and he believes that they will all return home and rebuild Syria.
