Handala, the Palestinian refugee child, appeared in thousands of political caricatures to shed light on the Palestinian condition. He remained on his feet as the Middle East was engulfed with wars, becoming a hero for an entire Arab generation. As a child of the Lebanese Civil War and once a refugee myself, I always looked up to Handala and the stories of his resilience. Today, Handala has been making new appearances. As I chase his manifestations worldwide, I encounter fascinating stories of refuge, triumph, and artistry. I wonder, what is Handala trying to draw our attention to today?
