The Violinists

Fadi Iskandar and his family are refugees. They fled Aleppo, Syria to find sanctuary when the ongoing civil war became too dangerous for them to stay. They, along with millions of Syrian refugees, fled their homes to find safety for their families. They've been seeking asylum in the United States for the past three years. Fadi and his wife Tamara have started a new life in Tucson, Arizona.
