School helps traumatized Syrian kids heal - Article Photos 1/3

In this Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012 photo, Dominique Hyde, UNICEF's representative to Jordan, speaks to Syrian refugee children during the opening of the first school at the Zaatari Syrian refugee camp in Mafraq, Jordan. For many Syrian children traumatized by the civil war and displacement from their homes, the opportunity to head back to school even if it's in a dusty, wind-swept refugee camp is a chance to return to a semblance of normalcy. Hyde, called Zaatari, “the children's camp” as nearly half of Zaatari's 33,000 residents are under the age of 18. She said it serves as an example of how the international community is trying to aid children bereft by the Syrian conflict. (AP Photo/ Raad Adayleh)
