Mohamad comes from a small city just outside of Damascus.
In Syria he was studying mathematics at university when the
situation came after which he fled to Libya to work as in a graphic
design shop. Things became too dangerous in Libya and
Mohamad came by boat to Europe. He’s been living in Germany
as a refugee for a year and a half and is still learning the
notoriously difficult language. In April 2016 Lorna and
Mohamad worked together to design the tour ‘Why We’re Here’.
He also works with the Daseinsfreunde team.
Favourite thing about Berlin: ‘I like Berlin because it is very
multicultural and the history of the city is very rich’
Favourite place in Berlin: ‘My favourite place in Berlin is
Gendarmenmarkt because it was a place where French refugees
settled in the 1600s showing that refugees have been welcome
in Berlin for centuries’
Hopes for the future: ‘I hope that I can spread joy and happiness
and understanding between different people. I hope one day I will
be able to go home and give tours in my city in Syria’
