“The Girl Who Escaped ISIS: This Is My Story” Published in Persian

Tuesday, November 7, 2017 - 13:20

“The Girl Who Escaped ISIS: This Is My Story”, by Farida Khalaf and published by Atria Books in July 2016, was named a “Best Book of the Year” by the New York Post. It has recently been published in Persian.

Somayyeh Nasrollahi has translated the book into Persian and Mehregan Kherad is the publisher of it, Tehran Times reports.

The ISIS fighters invaded Kocho, a village in north-eastern Iraq, in August 2014 and took Farida, her family and many other inhabitants and kept them prisoner for months.

Farida and the other unmarried girls were separated from the older women and taken to a slave market in Raqqa, Syria where they were repeatedly raped and beaten by their captors.

Farida and five other girls managed to escape from an ISIS military camp near the Omar gas field in eastern Syria, where they had been kept prisoner in shipping containers.

The story was transcribed from lengthy interviews conducted by Andrea C. Hoffmann, a German journalist who writes about women’s rights.
