When a city is destroyed, should you look forwards, backwards or just look down?

What did you see? What do all these pictures have in common?

We will be focusing on this city. Imagine that you can participate in the discussion on what should happen next with this city.

Work individually to analyse your document and answer the following questions:

  1. Where do you think this came from?
  2. Why do you think somebody made this?
  3. What do you think what was happening when this was made?
  4. Who do you think is the audience for this item?
  5. What tool was used to make this?
  6. Why do you think this item is important?
  7. What can you learn from examining this?

Share what you’ve discovered about your own document with the other people in your group. Try to relate the documents with each other.

In your group, discuss:

  1. What proposal is being presented in your documents?
  2. What is your own opinion about this proposal?
Are there other possibilities? 1 second view

You already discovered two different opinions about the future of the destroyed city of Ypres. Let's look at a third opinion. Let's puzzle it out:

  1. What is this about?
  2. Who wrote it?
  3. Who is the audience?
  4. What do you think the rest of the document is about?
  5. What do you think the first scheme is?

Do you still have the same opinion about the future of Ypres after your research?

What did you notice that you didn’t earlier?

And what about Aleppo?
