The boys behind bars and their new books
At the Roumieh Juvenile Detention Centre, over 180 teenagers with over 180 stories of deprivation are imprisoned. The stories when told vary, but they are very much similar; poverty, broken homes, and hopelessness. 55% of the juveniles are Syrian teenage refugees whose hearts stopped foreseeing a positive future. The others are young Lebanese boys who come from poor and forgotten areas in Lebanon. Life behind bars in prison Roumieh is not a joyful ride, but for some of the prisoners, jail is now home.
