KlappentextEvery religion and culture has a tradition of helping those in danger and distress. I do not think of us as different, but of all humanity as one country, where every person deserves equal rights, no matter whether they are black or white, man or woman, rich or poor. Since I can't build schools in every area that needs one, and I can't stand at every border handing out water and clothing, I will do what helped me to spread my own message of education for all: I will tell their stories, as well as the stories of others forced to flee their homeland. If more people understand that 50 million refugees means 50 million stories of fear, of upheaval, of an unknown future, and of hope, perhaps more people will act with open hearts. I hope that when you read these true stories, you will be inspired to stand with the millions of refugees who need our voice and our help.'
The book will be formed of two parts - the first will expand on Malala's own experiences as a refugee, when she was plucked from a remote valley in northern Pakistan and transported to Birmingham. In the second part, Malala will share the stories of 20-25 refugee girls she has met on her travels along with some famous men and women from the present day and throughout history who you may not know are refugees.
ZusammenfassungNobel Peace Prize winner and bestselling author Malala Yousafzai introduces some of the faces behind the statistics and news stories we read or hear every day about the millions of people displaced worldwide.
Malala's experiences visiting refugee camps caused her to reconsider her own displacement - first as an Internally Displaced Person when she was a young child in Pakistan, and then as an international activist who could travel anywhere in the world, except to the home she loved. In We Are Displaced, which is part memoir, part communal storytelling, Malala not only explores her own story of adjusting to a new life while longing for home, but she also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys - girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they've ever known.
In a time of immigration crises, war and border conflicts, We Are Displaced is an important reminder from one of the world's most prominent young activists that every single one of the 68.5 million currently displaced is a person - often a young person - with hopes and dreams, and that everyone deserves universal human rights and a safe home.

Autor

Malala Yousafzai is a cofounder and board member of Malala Fund. Malala began her campaign for education at age eleven, when she anonymously blogged for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban in Pakistan's Swat Valley. Inspired by her father's activism, Malala soon began advocating publicly for girls' education, attracting international media attention and awards. At age fifteen, she was attacked by the Taliban for speaking out. Malala recovered in the United Kingdom and continued her fight for girls. In 2013, she founded Malala Fund with her father, Ziauddin. A year later, Malala received the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts to see every girl complete twelve years of free, safe and quality education. She is currently a student at Oxford University, pursuing a degree in philosophy, politics and economics.
