My Country: A Syrian Memory description

While compatriots took up arms against the army of Bashar al-Assad, Palestinian Syrian Kassem Eid resolved to make his contribution via journalism and advocacy.  The Government’s chemical attack on the people of Ghouta changed that. Kassem’s haunting eyewitness account of al-Assad’s Sarin gas attack in August 2013 was published by The New York Times and spawned his powerful memoir, My Country, a condemnation of a brutal war and a world that tolerated it.
