Description: 
Between 2012 and 2013, UMAM Documentation and Research (UMAM D&R) worked in collaboration with the Lebanese Political Detainees in Syrian Prisons (LPDS) on a series of events in support of the detainees. It included round table discussions and live performances such as ?The Road to Damascus? conducted in Beirut and Tripoli and ?One Day in Hell? which dealt with prisoners re-enacting the morning hours of their experiences with prison guards. The latter was performed in five different cities in Germany. In the same year, UMAM D&R organized a round table discussion on the issue of the missing and forcibly disappeared which targeted the Committee of Families of the Kidnapped and Disappeared in Lebanon, Support for Lebanese in Detention Centres (SOLIDE), LPDS, and Legal Agenda.
