On August 3, 2014, Islamic State terrorists attacked peaceful Christian and Yazidi communities. More than 350000 Yazidis were living in the Sinjar region of northern Iraq. What followed was a genocide against Yazidis in which an estimated 3,750 men were killed. More than 7,750 women and children were taken captive, many to be sold as sex slaves. (Approximately 3,000 are still being held captive by ISIS.) Others escaped by fleeing to Mount Sinjar, only to die of thirst or starvation. As mass graves continue to be discovered, it seems unlikely that an accurate count of the victims of this genocide will ever be known. Now living in the USA, a Yazidi survivor of ISIS atrocities tells the story through lyric poetry. A portion of the proceeds from this book will be used to help other survivors, many of whom still live under deplorable conditions in displaced person camps.
