A Syrian refugee with a taste for tattoos and techno

The ongoing civil war in Syria, now entering its ninth year, has produced more than 6 million refugees who have fanned out across the region to Jordan, Egypt, Turkey and beyond to Europe. The GZERO team recently met a refugee who fled Aleppo in 2016 and eventually settled in Germany. A lover of tattoos and techno music, he is now studying to be a social worker and adjusting to his new life. He told us the harrowing story of how he escaped his war-torn country, and what life has been like since. The full episode of GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, which focuses on the current crisis in Idlib province and the history of the conflict in Syria, begins airing Friday on U.S. public television.
