“I don’t look up when shells fall from the sky, I just keep on going”

18/07/2016ofCéline Neuenschwander

Swiss citizen Marie-Louise Haddad lives in the Syrian capital Damascus, which has been continually under fire since the outbreak of the war in Syria. Yet not even for a second has the 90-year-old considered leaving the country. She explains her reasons for this in an interview during her visit to Switzerland. Haddad also gives an unfiltered impression of the mindset of the Syrian population and her everyday life among traffickers, IS and bomb attacks.
