They are too young and unconscious to know but will follow the path and will of their grownups blindly. Still unaware of the powers of ideology, religion, politics and human beliefs they have all lost loved ones, homes and overall a safe childhood. Whether born by jihadists in the former Caliphate, brought up amidst freedom fighters in Rojava, fleeing Turkish forces, living on either side of the fence of the Al-Hol Camp or bound to a hospital bed they are all born and brought up into conflict and war and face an unknown future that will shape them forever.
