'Telling my story of first, surviving genocide and then, as a captive of ISIS is not easy, but people must know.' The remarkable and courageous story of Nadia Murad, a twenty-three-year-old Yazidi woman who is working with Amal Clooney to challenge the world to fight ISIS on behalf on her people.

With a foreword by Amal Clooney.

A Nobel Peace Prize nominee and the first Goodwill Ambassador the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking of the United Nations and winner of the Vaclav Havel Human Rights Prize, Nadia Murad is a courageous young woman who has endured unimaginable tragedy (losing eighteen members of her family) and degradation through sexual enslavement to ISIS. But she has fought back.

This inspiring memoir takes us from her peaceful childhood in a remote village in Iraq through loss and brutality to safety in Germany. Courage and testimony can change the world: this is one of those books.

Industry Reviews

So vivid, engrossing and well written it is close to unputdownable - Sydney Morning Herald, The Saturday Age,

I highly recommend it


A journey of agony of a person , a family , a village , a community. Yet only one page in the apocalypse of anguish of Azidi people.



Great book - couldn't put it down


It really gave an insight into the plight of these poor people. Very sad but also showed the ISIS group as just horrible with no value of life what so ever. How they can do those imaginable things to those people just going about their own way of life. The other thing that struck me was that fact that this is now not 30 or 40 years ago. The world has not moved on from religious persecution one bit. Very very sad.
