«Wir haben das Selfie zur Erinnerung gemacht, weil wir nicht wissen, ob wir nächsten Ramadan zurückkommen können», sagt Shorouq, eine junge Frau aus der Westbank, die sich zusammen mit ihrer Freundin Shahira fotografiert.

Viele der Pilger, die sich fotografieren, halten auch Zettel in der Hand, um zu Hause gebliebenen Verwandten zu zeigen, dass man an sie denkt.
