The last girl : my story of captivity, and my fight against the Islamic State by Nadia Murad( Book )

33 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in 11 languages and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this intimate memoir of survival, a former captive of the Islamic State tells her harrowing and ultimately inspiring story. Nadia Murad was born and raised in Kocho, a small village of farmers and shepherds in northern Iraq. A member of the Yazidi community, she and her brothers and sisters lived a quiet life. Nadia had dreams of becoming a history teacher or opening her own beauty salon. On August 15th, 2014, when Nadia was just twenty-one years old, this life ended. Islamic State militants massacred the people of her village, executing men who refused to convert to Islam and women too old to become sex slaves. Six of Nadia's brothers were killed, and her mother soon after, their bodies swept into mass graves. Nadia was taken to Mosul and forced, along with thousands of other Yazidi girls, into the ISIS slave trade. Nadia would be held captive by several militants and repeatedly raped and beaten. Finally, she managed a narrow escape through the streets of Mosul, finding shelter in the home of a Sunni Muslim family whose eldest son risked his life to smuggle her to safety. Today, Nadia's story--as a witness to the Islamic State's brutality, a survivor of rape, a refugee, a Yazidi--has forced the world to pay attention to the ongoing genocide in Iraq. It is a call to action, a testament to the human will to survive, and a love letter to a lost country, a fragile community, and a family torn apart by war"

I 2014 var Nadia Murad 21 år gammel og drømte om å bli lærer. Sammen med moren og søsknene sine bodde hun i en liten landsby i Nord-Irak. Familien tilhørte den religiøse minoriteten yazidiene, som levde i fred side om side med muslimske og kristne naboer – helt til IS-styrker inntok landsbyen. De fleste av landsbyens menn ble ført bort, mange av dem henrettet, blant annet Nadias seks brødre. Selv var hun blant kvinnene som ble holdt som sex-slaver av IS-soldatene, inntil hun ved en tilfeldighet klarte å rømme. I denne boken forteller Nadia historien om dagene i fangenskap og flukten som fulgte. Omtalen er utarbeidet av BS
