Episode #23: Firsthand Perspectives of Syria with Pawel Krzsiek

SHOW NOTES

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with ICRC's Head of Communications in Syria, Pawel Krzsiek. Pawel has been on the frontlines in Syria both leading up to the conflict and again since 2015. What is the latest situation on the ground? The recent ICRC report on Urban Warfare, I Saw My City Die, found that nearly half of all civilian war deaths worldwide occurred in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, the main focus countries of the report. In light of this, how are the needs and response different in urban contexts? How do civilians determine whether to stay or flee? And how do we work in areas of limited access? Pawel shares some of his harrowing firsthand perspectives of working in cities under siege. Hosted by Niki Clark and Sara Owens.
