Souriana, a basketball team formed in Düsseldorf, Germany, by an all Syrian team and coach is a project aiming to help build a strong relationship between Germany and Syria. Most of the players were part of the best national basketball teams in their homeland, equal to the first basketball league of European basketball teams; and all of them played on the under-18 leagues, yet as professional and national players. Since last summer, these players have had to move out and leave behind their careers and old lives. With houses and buildings tumbling down into large piles of dust these 16 members, whose ages range from 18-22, had no choice but to leave everything they hold dear behind and venture into a land they have only heard by name. Their arrival to Germany marked the end of the life they dreamed of and the beginning of a life in uncharted waters
