On a busy high street in northern Jordan, shoppers bustle past the stalls selling toys, shoes, bikes and kettles. In a kitchen nearby, a baker bakes the next dayâs bread. Across town, a couple prepare for their wedding, while a young boy prepares to return to school.
My favourite thing about Refugee Camp: Our Desert Home (BBC2) is that it portrays the residents of Zaatari, Jordanâs fourth-biggest city, as just normal people. But the title gives the game away. Zaatari isnât a normal town. Itâs the worldâs biggest Syrian refugee camp. And just four years ago, none of its 80,000 residents lived there.
If you havenât heard of Zaatari, you might have seen it in photos. Itâs often used to show the scale of the Syrian refugee crisis (which has created more than five million refugees, and counting), usually broadcast as an aerial photo of the camp. Endless rows of prefab containers stretch into the desert â reminding us just how insulated Europe has been from the reality of the crisis.
