Syrian refugees use art to keep their culture alive

How Syrian refugees are preserving their history and culture under threat by years of war.

    For seven years, the Zaatari refugee camp on Jordan's border with Syria has provided shelter to thousands of Syrians.

    Most of the younger people there have no memory of life anywhere else.

    Some of the older refugees are trying to recreate the Syrian culture they were forced to leave behind.
