A long night

Duhok, Kurdistan Region of Iraq

Shamal Sabri director, curator


    Within wars and revolutions many people become victims and may heroes, names arise, but sadness, sorrow and disasters become the share of woman.

    Woman in every case sacrifices but unfortunately her sacrifices are regardless, here I wanted to speak about a Kurdish woman and her sacrifices.

    After the collapse of Kurdish revolution in 1975 Kurds began to leave Iraqi Kurdistan towards Iran and settled in an Iranian camp, among the refugees was a Kurdish woman with her two children who left her husband who was a Peshmarga fighting the enemy.

    In the refugees camp there was an Iranian officer who wanted to rape this woman, but this woman tried to protect herself from the officer and she hopes to live a better life in future.
