Christina Lamb & Mike Thomson
Fri 25 Aug 5:45pm - 6:45pm
Stories from Syria
Samer, a 24 year old Syrian found by BBC Foreign Affairs Correspondent Mike Thomson, defied ISIS’s threats of beheading to tell the world what was happening in his city. The Raqqa Diaries is the shocking and deeply moving result. Co-author of I Am Malala, Christina Lamb helped Nujeen Mustafa write about her journey - in a wheelchair - from her ISIS-threatened Syrian village to a new life in Germany. Hear two of the most courageous stories of the Festival. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
