WHERE THE CHILDREN SLEEP
A photo exhibit about refugee children in Europe and the Middle East

A boy without a bed.
A girl afraid to close her eyes.
A child who dreams of when bedtime didn’t bring terror.
More than two million children have been forced from their homes by the war in Syria. Refugee children in neighbouring countries or making journeys through Europe show us where they sleep while they await an uncertain future.
Magnus Wennman, winner of two World Press Photo Awards, has partnered with UNHCR to raise awareness about refugee children.
