Episode 6 – Omar Alshogre and the power of small actions

From age 17 to 20, Omar Alshogre was detained as a political prisoner by the Assad regime—simply for attending opposition demonstrations. Syria is known for its brutal torture prisons; Omar spent time in the nation’s most notorious detention center, Saydnaya, where Syrian people are systematically executed. Listen to our conversation with Omar as he describes his three years of incarceration and his inspiring resilience after being released. This episode was developed across 4 countries and 2 continents and produced by Paula Medina Agromayor, Anya Bégué, and Mario Edoardo Simmaco.
