Product description

“I’m still afraid really, because, as they were taking my dad away, one of the soldiers turned to us and said ‘We’ll be coming back for you.’ I can still see and hear them.”

Mohammed was only six on the terrible night in October 2000 when Saddam Hussein’s soldiers came to his house, beat his mother and took his father away. Mohammed never saw his father again. That was the start of his journey. He and his mother knew they had to escape from Iraq. Their perilous journey to seek asylum in England took them across mountains and rivers in Iran and Turkey. They travelled by bus, on horseback, and in a small boat on a raging river, facing terrible dangers, before hiding in a lorry on a ship to get to England. Mohammed and his mother were granted leave to stay in 2002.

Told in Mohammed’s own words, plus photos, drawings, facts and maps, this book follows the real-life journey of a Kurdish child refugee. Showing how he survived terror and hardship in order to seek a new life, it is a testament to all people who are forced to leave their homes in search of safety.
