Today, August 30, marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared Imm Aziz sits in her house under the photos of her four sons. On a September day in 1982, militants came knocking on the Dirawi's door in #Beirut #Lebanon, while they were having breakfast together and took away by force Imm Aziz' 4 sons, Aziz, 31, Ibrahim, 27, Mansour, 25, and Ahmad, 13. Like many families of the #Missing, Imm Aziz kept some of the belongings of her children as relics of their one-time presence, hoping that they will come back home one day to find them preserved. Imm Aziz talks to her children every night before she goes to sleep. She asks each one of them if he can see her, if he is ok, eating and sleeping well. She keeps the window above her bed open in case they come back one day and walk down the alley behind the window. She wants to make sure she sees them when they finally come back home. There is an estimated number of 17,000 missing from the 1975-90 Lebanese civil war whose fate is still unknown. From my ongoing project on the #MissingOfLebanon

August 30 marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared A pendant in the shape of a heart, with photos of Ammar Mohammad Saleh, centre, and his father and another with the letter A for his name hang on a chain. Ammar was 21 years old in March 1982 when he took a taxi from #Beirut, #Lebanon, and headed to Baalback to his parents' house. He never reached home that day or the days, months and years that followed. A month before Ammar went missing, he gave his pendants to his sister Salam, a year older than him. Salam and her mother looked for Ammar in Lebanon and in Syria's prisons but never found him. His fate is still unknown.

August 30 marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared Maguy Andreotti sits in her living room under a portrait of her son Stavro. In 1978, on a July day Stavro, 17, went with his neighbours/friends for a drive near #Beirut #Lebanon. He never came back home that night! All the neighbours waited that evening but the teenagers never made it home. That day was the last time she saw him. Maguy lost her 3 boys in Lebanon's civil war. Stavro, 17, was kidnapped and his fate is still unknown.. Her middle son, 9, was killed when a bomb hit their house in the 70ies and her youngest one, 1, suffocated from the shelter's smoke while they were hiding from the bombing. He died in her arms while she thought he was sleeping! Few years ago her husband passed away. Maguy talks mostly about Stavro. She mourned her two other sons as well as her husband but she still has hope that Stavro will come back one day. There is an estimated number of 17,000 missing from the 1975-90 Lebanese civil war whose fate is still unknown. From my ongoing project on the #MissingOfLebanon

August 30 marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared A photo of Georges Ghawi sits on one of the two beds in the one bedroom apartment where his mother Marie lives alone, north of #Beirut, #Lebanon. Marie said she sleeps on the other one and talks to her son all the time, wondering if he is still alive and safe. When I was first visited her in winter, years ago, she had the winter sheet on. In summer she removes hers and the one on her sonโ€™s bed. Georges was 22 when he was kidnapped as he was on his way to a business meeting in west Beirut on December 30, 1983. Marie looked for him everywhere but never found him. He is one of the estimated 17,000 #missing from Lebanon 1975-90 civil war whose fate is still unknown.

August 30 marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared On November 1, 2015, I spent the day with Zahra Abbas whose husband Mohammad went missing in 1978 as he was on his way to Lebanon from Saudi after finishing his contract there. Mohammad who drove his car with 2 other colleagues, crossed the Saudi-Jordanian border, the Jordanian-Syrian border and then the Syrian-Lebanese one but never made it back home to his family in south #Lebanon. A month after the shoot, Zahra, whose health was going bad, passed away without knowing the fate of her husband! Zahra never stopped looking for her husband. She raised her 4 daughters alone, she was 25 in 1978. There is an estimated number of 17.000 missing from the Lebanese civil war whose fate is still unknown.

August 30 marks the #InternationalDayOfTheDisappeared A shoe in an abandoned building that was used as a detention centre during the 1975-90 Lebanese civil war in #Bhamdoun, east of #Beirut #Lebanon. Inside the building, a couple of months after Wajih Zahalan was kidnapped in 1982, was found a pile of passports belonging to people who were taken away by force by a Lebanese militia, amongst those passport was Wajih's. In 2014, Ayman Zahalan, his son, entered the building for the first time since the kidnapping of his father in 1982. He looked for writings on the wall, hoping to find a message from his father but found nothing. There is an estimated number of 17.000 missing from the Lebanese civil war whose fate is still unknown.

Ahmad was almost 18 when he was on his way to Beirut in 1976 and was stopped at a checkpoint on Khaldeh's highway south of the capital. He was taken away by force and never seen again. Majida's mother passed away heartbroken few years later, Majida says. She made her promise her she will always look for Ahmad.
