This moving story tells of the struggle for survival of a Kurdish community living in Halabja in northern Iraq. Events from the early 1960s onwards, the various stages of the Peshmerga war and the gradual rise to power of Saddam Hussein are followed through the eyes of Kadir and his extended family. Hama Dostan provides the reader with a real insight into how it feels to be caught up in a war-torn region of the world. His portrait is both intimate and harrowing giving a powerful impression of the human cost of all such senseless violence.
