The Syrian Archive

Syrian Archive is a Syrian-led project that aims to preserve, enhance and memorialise documentation of human rights violations and other crimes committed by all parties to conflict in Syria for use in advocacy, justice and accountability. Syrian Archive is a project of Mnemonic, a non-profit organisation dedicated to archiving disappearing digital material. Syrian Archive has reinstated 350,357 videos to social media platforms through its Lost and Found campaign. Their project (Re-)Humanization of the Syrian digital memory aims to investigate the “meaning(s)” of, what is today called, the “Syrian Digital Memory”.

Syrian Archive creates archives, investigates and memorialises the data it has collected, builds tools, trains others and works with platforms to reduce the impact of their harmful policies.
