In September, 2014, the Kurdish Kobanê Canton in Syria, was violently attacked by occupying ISIS gangs. The YPG / YPJ forces showed exemplary resistance against ISIS, who had never been defeated during previous occupations. After 134 days of street fighting and the bombing of coalition planes, the city of Kobanê was liberated. During the war, some of the people of Kobanê escaped and took shelter on the Turkish side of the border, where they had to observe the fighting from afar. They waited for days, weeks and months at the border, where the sounds of war were always present, expecting to hear from their sons, daughters and relatives who were defending the city. As war-torn Kobanê was liberated on January 26, 2016, another tough struggle was awaiting the people: building a new life on top of the ruins.
