1) I’m gonna ask for help regarding family reunification for a Yazidi boy again. Maybe this time the power of twitter will work.
It’s about the boy on the cover of my book. He was 11 years old when IS kidnapped him and his whole family in 2014. #yezidigenocide
The boy is from Kocho, the same village as Nadia Murad grew up in. The men and older boys from this village were all killed. The women and children were kidnapped and sold as slaves. This boys mother and his sisters were kidnapped too, but they managed to escape in 2015.
After their escape, the mother (who got a stroke twice as she saw how her teen daughter was taken by an old IS man) and sisters got asylum in Germany, where they have been living ever since. The boy couldn’t come as he was still in IS-captivity. In 2017, he escaped as well.

Heartbreaking moments when a Yezidi survivor met her family after 5 years of enslavement,torture and rape in IS captivity.
She was kidnapped from shingal with 7000 Yezidi Women and Children and forced to convert to Islam.
She was welcomed by her community.
21 Yezidis who escaped/rescued were welcomed by their relatives in shingal.
Most of them were children who lost their families and these children were used as fighters by IS after being brainwashed and forced to convert to Islam.
#YezidiGenocide survivors who was kidnapped with 77 members of her family: IS took us from shingal to Syria.
Men were separated from women and were killed.
Children were taken from their mothers and girls who aged over 7 years were also raped with all others.

Sinjar’s #Yazidis and their #Arab and #Kurdish Sunni neighbours lived in peace until 3 August 2014. The date is scrawled on the city’s ruins. It is seared in memory. On that day, ISIS militants and their local Sunni supporters overran the district and surrounding areas.
Massacres, forced conversions to #Islam, and kidnappings ensued. Militants took women and girls as sex slaves in a campaign of terror that #Yazidis describe as 74th attempt to annihilate them because of their faith.
Like others be4 them,ISIS followers regard Yazidis as devil-& sun-worshipping apostates. Yazidism is a closed religion that forbids converts,enforces a strict caste system,brands followers who abandon it infidels&prohibits intermarriage with non-Yazidis,reinforcing its insularity
