I visited the Druze

Remigiusz Szwoch

Introduction

In the academic year of 1998 / 1999, I had the chance to go to Syria as a participant in a scholarship organised by the Polish Ministry of Education. My timetable at the Arabic Institute for Foreigners in Damascus frequently allowed me to go on trips to find out more about the inhabitants of Syria.

During one of those trips into the mountainous regions, at the foot ofJabalal-Shaikh, I came across a community with unique and distinctive outfits. I saw the same minority later near Suwayda and Idlib as well as in Damascus itself. My trips included a visit to a village called Hudur in the Golan Heights.
