5.0 out of 5 starsGripping story of a Darfury boy and his long way to freedom
ByM. A. De Vrieson 21 October 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
This is an amazing story of a boy, born in Darfur, who is forced to flee the country. We learn a lot about the life in his native village, the close family ties and the habits. We follow the writer as he is studying, then forcefully conscripted, imprisoned and ultimately manages to flee his country to Egypt. Here at first, he enjoys a good life, but things turn very bad there. During a demonstration, his pregnant wife is killed and he is again imprisoned. We learn about his escape to Israël, where he is at first treated well by soldiers, but then imprisoned with other refugees. It's a story that gave me much more understanding about the plight of refugees in general and about the Darfuries in Israël in particular. It gives a rare insight into the writer's life, partly because of his eloquence and his ability to tell the story in Engish. He's a good storyteller. I can recommend this book heartily. I think it's a must-read for anyone wanting to gain insight into what it means to be a refuge and how we can act to help them.

Despite adversity and own suffering, how a man could still dedicate his life to help others is truly inspirational. A page-turner book that makes you realise what it would feel like to suddenly have to flee from your country and be a refugee in other countries that don't welcome you. Reading Ibrahim's inner dialogue makes you wonder how you would have reacted if you were him. For sure, few of us would have done what Ibrahim did. One of millions, indeed.
