My name is Motaz and I’m 24 years old.
I lived a regular life in Aleppo, like any human being. I went to school and played with friends when I was little. I remember I did not go out often, because there were big streets and cars. I have 3 siblings and I’m the middle child. I loved going out and staying out for a long time.Dublin Core: Language: swe Subject: asylum, refugees, A Million Stories, Sweden
My name is Mona from Baghdad and I am 27 years old. Mother to two children. I live in Malmo, recently two years ago.
I was born in Baghdad. My dad was a communist and he raised me and my 4 siblings in a different way from the tradition in Iraq. The woman has her rights and lives in her own way. I grew up with these thoughts from my dad. But when I got older, my thoughts broke with the society in Baghdad.
My name is Omar, a Palestinian dentist from Gaza. I came to Sweden during the last war in Gaza 2014 and have lived here for almost three years.
I never thought I would leave Palestine or Gaza. In my country there is no electricity, sometimes no gas, no medicin, and we are sometimes locked in, but still I love my homeland and miss it. But I had to flee because our house was bombed. Sometimes when I watch videos from Gaza I start crying, I miss it.Dublin Core: Language: sv Subject: asylum, refugees, A Million Stories, Sweden
My name is Thair and I come from Aleppo in Syria.
I worked as head of a car shop and a clothing store. I am also an author and a poet. I had a good life in Syria, social life was very good. I’ll never find a country like Syria. The war started a little later in Aleppo and we stopped feeling safe. Either you were with or against the government. There was no other choice.Dublin Core: Language: swe Subject: asylum, refugees, A Million Stories, Sweden
My name is Bave and I am a kurd from Qamishli in Syria. My life was very good before the war. I went to school as usual and went out with my friends. Our life was much nicer than life in Europe. The war came and destroyed our whole life. It was a shock.Dublin Core: Language: sv Subject: asylum, refugees, A Million Stories, Sweden
