Children of War Children Of Peace - Farhat Art Museum
After the 2006 Israeli attack on the following territories of Lebanon, South Lebanon, Dahiyah Disctrict of South Beirut, and Baalbak, the Farhat Art Museum was able to obtain a collection of over two hundred drawings done by children from the devastated areas. The children's ages were varied from age six to fourteen. The objective of those drawings was to allow the children of disasters to express their post- traumatic feelings. Those images were saturated with pure imagination and honesty. The end result were some very powerful images that not even modern masters could copy.
