An event with

Diana Darke

The Last Sanctuary in Aleppo


Thursday 28th March 2019 at 7:00pm  |  Daunt Books Marylebone


Diana Darke is well-known as one of Britain’s foremost commentators on daily life in Syria. In her new book, which she has co-authored with Alaa Aljaleel, she brings this remarkable man’s story to light. Alaa Aljaleel is an ambulance driver who stayed behind in Aleppo when war came, caring for people and animals caught in the crossfire of the conflict. He created a cat sanctuary for abandoned animals which became a place of tranquility for children living through the bombardment. This is an extraordinary and inspiring story of one man seeking to make a difference and also a shocking insider account of life in Aleppo.
