    Though Alia and her husband had capitulated in order to survive and were forced to do whatever Amo demanded, she believed that she might save Zainab by arranging a marriage to an Iraqi who lived in the US.

Duration: 10 hours 30 minutes Summary: Zainab Salbi was eleven years old when her father was chosen to serve as Saddam Hussein's personal pilot, her family often forced to spend weekends with Saddam where he watched their every move.

Between Two Worlds: Escape from Tyranny book

A former Los Angeles Times reporter, she wrote the first story about Salbi inwhen Zainab was a young woman stranded in America after a failed marriage during the Gulf Zainab Salbi is the founder and president of Women for Women International, a nonprofit organization providing women survivors of war with resources to move from crisis to stability.

It had a dent on one edge I can still visualize because I so often wondered what sort of blow might have caused it. It is not a dry telling of events and facts, but rather the history, etc enhances her experiences. She holds degrees from George Mason University and the London School of Economics, and she has publicized her work widely in the media, including six appearances on Oprah.

I guarantee you won't be able to put it down. We also read a lot of her family, how they were affected by Hussein, how they worked and didn't work because of their personalities, the times s and '80sand the pressures put on them as part of the dreaded inner circle.

She was a teacher when I was little and when she came home from school she would take a nap on the sofa. Laurie Becklund is a Los Angeles journalist and author. More can be learned from this memoir than all of the newscasts.

Incredible how one man can install such fear into the people who live in a coubtry he rules. She holds degrees from George Mason University and the London School of Economics, and she has publicized her work widely in the media, including six appearances on Oprah.

She now writes from Virginia. Burying in boxes in her mind the horrors she glimpsed around her. She forged a new identity as founder and president of Women for Women International, a nonprofit organization for female victims of war, dedicated to providing women of war and civil unrest with the resources to become self-sufficient citizens and promote peace.

As with most of us I know that Hussein was an awful man and a dictator, but Zainab's experiences vacationing in his palaces, living in fear that he would hurt her family, seeing how he manipulated people and situations is so revealing!

The summary above captivated me. She had the gift of being able to fall asleep almost instantly, and she radiated utter peace as she slept. She holds degrees from George Mason University and the London School of Economics, and she has publicized her work widely in the media, including six appearances on Oprah.

Despite extraordinary psychological challenges, Zainab started over. This book is fascinating, scary, overwhelming, interesting, and eye-opening. He routinely raped the gypsy women who were ordered to his palaces to entertain parties of men. The relationship Zainab describes with her mother is interesting.

ISBN 13: 9781592401567

A good insight to understand more of Iraq and Saddam Hussein. Burying in boxes in her mind the horrors she glimpsed around her. Of course, I also assumed back then that Iraq would always be my home.

But until now, Zainab has never told this very personal tale. Saddam enjoyed humiliating his enemies by raping their wives.2. Between Two Worlds begins with a description of the Abbisid coin, Zainab Salbi’s mother, Alia, wore around her neck.
