"Mukhayam - Little Palestine", a comic by Didier Kassaï

Country : Lebanon

Tags : Refugees, Palestine, Comic, Central African Republic, Beirut

After surviving the black days of the Central African conflict, Didier Kassaï set off for Lebanon. Impossible for him not to compare the Burj el-Barajneh camp with the one he knew in Bangui – and yet nothing is the same. A self-taught Illustrator and cartoonist, he brought out his first personal album L’Odyssée de Mongou in 2008, followed this year by Tempête sur Bangui, published by La Boîte à Bulles, and Pousse-pousse, published by L’Harmattan BD.

For ARTE Reportage, Didier Kassaï wandered through the maze of the Burj el-Barajneh camp to recount the daily existence of Palestinian refugees, turned upside-down by the arrival of Syrian refugees.
