A true story set in Bulgaria at the time it fell into communist hands and rule. This story tells of a young Roma boy "Hussain" and his family that lead a happy peaceful co-existence with different races, communities and faiths in Bulgaria until one day the muslims including Roma, Turks and other minorities are prevented from praying in mosques and are put under curfew.
In a very short period their identity papers are destroyed and they are forced to choose a Christian name which they resent but must comply for their safety.
A good book with clear story line that tells a lot in a few pages. I felt the language and style could have been improved upon for young readers but soon realised that there is importance in getting the message of this account across and understood in simple fashion.My Name Was Hussein
