Ghar

Project from Nienke Galjaard



Aleppo soap has been prepared with a traditional recipe for hundreds of years. About three hundred families in Syria ran businesses producing this type of soap, but due to the war production is now impossible. The soap is connected to countless stories and memories, which Syrian refugees took with them. Ghar shares the stories and memories connected to Aleppo soap, in order to make Syrian refugees less anonymous in our society.
