In 2014 Yarmouk Camp, home of the largest population of Palestinian refugees in Syria, was besieged by the forces of dictator Bashar al-Assad. Starving and under constant shelling, residents of the camp uploaded video of Eyham Ahmed wheeling his piano into public spaces with groups of singers. In March 2015 ISIS attacked the camp. On April 19, 2015, they burned the piano of Yarmouk.
