Syrian Uprising

The Syrian Uprising is an ongoing armed conflict taking place in Syria. The unrest began in the early spring of 2011 within the context
of Arab Spring protests, with nationwide protests against President Bashar al-Assad's government, whose forces responded with viol-
ent crackdowns. The conflict gradually morphed from popular protests to an armed rebellion with sheer brutality and links to different
terrorist groups like IS. In 2012 war reporter Kurt Pelda and me entered the Syrian border near Azaz, close to Aleppo as probably one
of the first western reporters. At this time there was at least a chance for optimism. But a few month later, our guide and some of his
friends got kidnapped by IS.

Die Hilfe braucht Hilfe, fuer DU Magazin

In Afrikanischen Gefängnissen herrschen oft rechtsfreie Zustände.
Insassen, die nicht wissen wofür sie eingesperrt wurden.. Wärter, deren einziger Verdienst die Bestechnungsgelder der Gefangenen sind.. und Menschen, die teilweise zusammengepfercht in viel zu kleinen Zellen während Wochen kein Tageslicht sehen..
Das IKRK hat keine leichte Aufgabe

Aftermath of the Libyen Civil War

Libya is enduring fundamental social and political changes after the overthrow and killing of Muammar Gaddafi in the Civil War. The country has been subject to ongoing proliferation of weapons, Islamic insurgencies, sectarian violence, and lawlessness, with spillovers affecting neighboring countries including Mali.
A journey together with war reporter Kurt Pelda from Misrata to Tawergha, Tripolis, Zuwara, Zintan and down to the south towards the historic city of Gadames, to the heartland of Tuareg tribes and Al-Quaida.


Libyan Civil War

An armed conflict in the North African country of Libya, fought between forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and those seeking
to oust his government.The war was preceded by protests in Zawiya, and finally ignited by protests in Benghazi beginning on Tuesday,
15 February 2011, which led to clashes with security forces that fired on the crowd.The protests escalated into a rebellion that spread
across the country.
On two journeys in 2011, Kurt Pelda and me joined FLA rebels in the Nafusa Mountains, to document their fight against Gaddafi's army. 


Sidi Bilal

During the Libyan civil war more than 600 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa are effectively stranded at a port of Sidi Bilal
just outside the Libyan capital, and have been left to fend for themselves by Libyan authorities. Despite repeated attacks,
harassment, and arbitrary arrests by Libyan gangs over the course of four months, they have received no protection.
The men in these camps are routinely harassed and accused of being pro-Gaddafi mercenaries, the women are targets
of sexual abuse. All face intimidation by armed Libyan thugs who drive into the port at night firing guns into the air.
In 2011 when Gaddafi was still alive at that time, Kurt Pelda and me we visited the refugees in Libya the first time. Their
situation was more than desperat.
