Based on interviews with hundreds of displaced Syrians conducted over four years across the Middle East and Europe, We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled is a mosaic of first-hand testimonials from the frontlines. Some of the testimonies are several pages long, eloquent narratives that could stand alone as short stories; others are only a few sentences, poetic and aphoristic. Together, they cohere into a chronicle that is not only a testament to the power of storytelling but to the strength of those who face darkness with hope, courage, and moral conviction.

As I read this, I realized how woefully unaware I was of world events and that which the Syrian people have been living through for decades. I highly recommend this to anyone from 16 to 116.

A Middle East Studies Professor at Northwestern University writes an account of the Syrian conflict with a brief background history and accounts of Syrians whose lives have been forever changed by it. Told through countless interviews, Pearlman has structured a narrative of the war’s various stages told in a very personal way. Good reading.
