Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories

Cover photo image by Holly Pickett. Germany, 2014.


Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories features the writing and photography of nine Pulitzer Center grantees—journalists who reported on Syrian refugees between 2012 and 2015. Their travels took them from Syria to Sweden, and from crowded camps to cramped apartments in city suburbs.

To download the book, go to the iTunes store on an iPad with iBooks 2 or later and iOS 5 or later, or an iPhone with iOS 8.4 or later, or a Mac with OS X 10.9 or later. You can also download the book for Kindle through Amazon, or view it on Atavist.

Each of the journalists—Hugh Eakin, Lauren Gelfond Feldinger, Stephen Franklin, Joanna Kakissis, Alia Malek, Holly Pickett, Alisa Roth, Alice Su, and Selin Thomas—lends a unique perspective.

Originally published in Al Jazeera, BBC News, Guernica, In These Times, Marketplace, NPR, The Atlantic, and The New York Review of Books, these stories tell of an abandoned homeland, an indifferent world, and an uncertain future. They trace the history of one of the biggest displacements of modern times—providing a testament to the suffering and courage of those who fled.

Edited by Contributing Editor Kem Sawyer and designed by Multimedia Coordinator Evey Wilson, Flight from Syria: Refugee Stories is now available on iTunes and is also available on Atavist. Information graphics by Liz Adetiba, Jin Ding, Akela Lacy, Jessica Obert, and Anna Ziv are also included.
