Kane Hall 120

In August 2014, ISIS swarmed over the Iraqi Sinjar region giving the Yazidis the choice to convert or die – leaving 5,000 dead, half a million displaced and more than 3,000 girls and women forced into sexual enslavement. “Hawar” is the story of Düzen Tekkal’s journey back to her Yazidi homeland and her arrival to an ISIS bloodbath. She is an award-winning German journalist and human rights activist of Kurdish-Yazidi origin.
