Let Me Tell You My Story, Refugee Stories of Hope, Courage and Humanity
Compiled by ‘Their Story is Our Story’
If you have enjoyed reading and using my book Stepping Stones, A Refugee Family’s Journey, you will appreciate this gorgeous book (for adults).
“I want to have my own family…”
Layla from Ethiopia shares how she left her home in search of work, a better place to live. She tells how she walked for days and days with her baby on her back.
Parsa had to flee Iran because he loved music and the Islamic police persecuted him for singing. “Now I am in Germany and I go to music school and can achieve my dream.”
This large, coffee table art book is full of gorgeous photos and heart wrenching stories.
The people are real. They share their life experience on one page, recorded by volunteers who felt it was time that we put a face to the term ‘refugee’.
Some of the images are beautiful oil paintings or sketches by Elizabeth Thayer. “Art has the power to bring people together,” she says, I hope that my work will others understand the challenges refugees face, encourage empathy, and inspire others to find their own way to come to the rescue.” That is the message throughout this gorgeous book. Information on Fleeing, Borders, Asylum and more inform the reader and create a better understanding of the humanity of refugees and the urgent need for all of us to work together to help bring people home.
A portion of the proceeds of each volume sold will fund awareness of refugees worldwide.
