MY ALEPPO. Against Forgetting - Pictures and Stories from Aleppo
The city portrait reader MYAL - My Aleppo
English / Arabic / German
ISBN 978-3-9809887-6-6
Published: 2015
My Aleppo is being published in the second edition and will be available commercially in December 2015 and as a collector's edition from January 2016
The first, already out of print edition of MYAL was published in 2011. The third
volume in the series of city portrait readers on international cities shows
“views on the inside” of the life of Aleppines: urban structures as well as ways of life and
manners that have evolved over centuries.
The two editors then preserved in their foreword: “As we write this preface, an atmosphere of change is evident in Syrian society, the effects of which are not yet foreseeable. Thus, the articles in the book document something that will (or may) perhaps soon be a part of the past. Yet, it will also still present the basis for the future.”

In fact, MYAL now documents an era that, in the meantime, belongs to the past. Nevertheless or precisely because of it, this volume can possibly make comprehensible, what an incredible loss must be lamented.
The war has not only caused countless deaths, driven millions of people to flee and destroyed much of the unique architecture of Aleppo, but it is also a war against the world cultural heritage of mankind. Therefore, the publication of the second edition is both a documentary and an appeal at the same time to keep alive the memories of Aleppo and its stories.
The focus of the book consists of photos from the early 1900's, among others from the Poche Marrache Archives (one of the last great merchant dynasties of the city), and the archives of Thierry Grandin, as well as pictures of different photographers from the years 2005 to 2010.
There are more everyday snapshots of natives and foreigners, from the visible and the invisible, from the narrow old town quarters and the Souq with its noisy intimacy, the view from the Citadel out across the city and immersion into partially strange and hidden worlds of Aleppo and its inhabitants. The pictures are complemented by stories of various authors about t
