It is two years since the now-iconic photograph of thousands of bewildered, besieged civilians in the Palestine refugee camp of Yarmouk, Damascus, was taken.It was an image whose quasi-biblical depiction of humans deliberately deprived of humanity, with its overtones of the great primordial epics of ancient literature, captured the world's collective imagination.It was reproduced in nearly a thousand newspapers around the world within the space of 24 hours.Selfies were tweeted back into Yarmouk in a moving act of global solidarity with Syria's starving masses. A U.N.-inspired clicking frenzy put center stage for one fleeting moment the humanity at the heart of all our work.The majority are Palestinians, yet is the plight of this marginalized community being overlooked, dwarfed by the sheer enormity of the gargantuan Syrian tragedy?We owe it to each and every individual in that photo, to ourselves and to future generations to find answers to these disquieting questions.
