The lasting horror of war|"I have never witnessed such grave atrocities." photo documentation by Kai Wiedenhofer on Syrian civil war

According to a WHO report from December 2014, more than one million Syrians have been wounded in the Syrian civil war since the spring of 2011. Some 45 per cent of the injured are children and women; about 10–15 per cent have suffered amputations or disabilities. Daily shelling is the main cause of their injuries. From spring 2014 to early 2015, photographer Kai Wiedenhofer travelled through towns, villages and refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon, taking pictures of those left scarred by the conflict. He says that by showing the genuine aftermath of this conflict and photographing its victims in a dignified manner, his intention was to raise support for people who are really in need and whose sufferings do not end with the war. “In all my time as a photographer,” he says, “I have never witnessed such grave atrocities.” All photos in this gallery are by Kai Wiedenhofer
