Yazidis

I'm very pleased to announce my new book, "Yazidis". This book is about a story of dignity and survival. A story I covered in Iraq in 2016 and 2017. The Yazidi people were one of those who suffered the most during the occupation of the Islamic State. His women were kidnapped, made sex slaves and sold as commodities. With the advance of forcing Kurds and Iraqis, Islamic State lost strength and they managed to return home. And then, a new story would need to be written.

The history of these women is important for so many others who live in a context of conflict to recognize and find examples of resilience in them. Courage may be inspired by Nadia Murad, also Yazidi and who, just as they were captured, became a sex slave until she finally ran away and denounced the horror she lived through to the world. She became the spokesperson for the Yazidis and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 2018. This book is dedicated to all women.
