Hans Wilschut and Hans Gremmen

Friday 6 Oktober 2023

Beirut Epi-Centre Ville, 2023

“With this book I try to make tangible the paralysis that remained in the city. The disaster killed 218 people and injured thousands. The devastation was enormous and many houses around the harbor were destroyed. Lebanon’s government subsequently fell, making the country politically unstable. The ensuing economic and administrative crisis is still ongoing.”, Hans Wilschut
