The shocking, unprecedented account of a Kurdish mother and daughter who were sex slaves for Isis for nearly two years.
 
Iraq, summer 2014. Islamic State control is extending to the north-east of the country. The village of Khanasor in the Sinjar region is living its final hours of tranquillity. One August morning, a pack of jihadis swarm the village. Ramia, a 12-year-old Kurd and her mother Adoul, 42, have no time to escape. Almost immediately separated, they are taken captive and, for more than a year and with no news of each other, are subjected to barbaric treatment by men.
Adoul is sold to rank-and-file jihadis, while Ramia becomes the plaything of the highest echelons of Islamic State, even meeting the self-proclaimed Calif, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, currently the most wanted man in the world.
This is the story they tell here, their two voices describing their detention.
 
 
Adoul Abdou Haji was born in Khanasor, in Iraq’s Sinjar region, in 1972. She married in 1993 and had six children. She was a housewife until she was captured by jihadis in August 2014.
Ramia Daoud Ilias was born in Khanasor, in Iraq’s Sinjar region, in November 2001. She was a schoolgirl until she was captured by jihadis in August 2014.
 
The book was written in collaboration with Alfred Hackensberger and Antoine Malo.

Ce livre est le récit d’un double combat. Celui d’une mère yézidie, Adoul, et de sa fille Ramia, captives de l’État islamique. Enlevées en Irak en 2014, elles ont
été séparées pendant plus d’un an, pour devenir les esclaves de l’organisation et subir, sans avoir de nouvelles l’une de l’autre, la barbarie des hommes.

Adoul a été vendue à de simples combattants. Ramia, alors âgée de douze ans, s’est retrouvée prisonnière des plus hauts chefs terroristes.

C’est ce destin qu’elles racontent ici, l’histoire à deux voix de leur détention. Les chapitres s’enchaînent, de la mère à la fille, composant un témoignage exceptionnel où se côtoient trahison et résistance, désespoir et quête de liberté.
