Entwicklung Meine Heimat Von Oula Mahfouz   Früher dachte ich, dass nur ein Ort Heimat sein kann und dass ich mein Heimatland (Syrien) niemals verlassen könnte.

Bald haben meine Eltern und meine Geschwister einer nach dem anderen Syrien verlassen. Ich war die letzte, die in Damaskus geblieben ist.

It’s hard to believe, but the history of the Schultüte goes… Read More
