Houda Al-Malek, a young refugee woman, tells the staggering story of her family's journey to Europe.
Since the death of my father, my mum has been restlessly struggling to continue with life, giving me and my brothers the motive to continue with our study. And when things deteriorated in Iraq, she decided to get Sajad out and bring him here so he would no longer feel inferior.
My mother took the risk and decided to leave Iraq. She told me she was ready to die in the sea, but the most important thing was that I take my brothers to the country I choose.
