Syria’s story comes to life through the photographs of Yvonne von Schweinitz from the years 1953 and 1960. The historical images show the country, the cultural wealth and the people. The journey leads from Damascus to the significant sites of Hama, Aleppo and Palmyra, the Alawi Mountains and the crusader castle “Krag des Chevaliers”. The guided tour conveys the historical significance of Syria, which goes back thousands of years and was groundbreaking for the history of Central Europe.
