For World Refugee Day

As a journalist I remember interviewing a victim of torture from Iraq. It was one of the more horrific interviews, but at least he was helped…


Where is your home?

I don’t have one

Why did you leave?

I had to run

What happened there?

I would have died

How did you reach us?

I had to hide

Your family?

They were all shot

What do you own?

Me. That’s all I’ve got

What do you want?

A job. No fear.

What’s your one wish?


Can I live here?
