This comic, by Sarah Glidden and the Common Language Project, tells the story of Iraqi refugees in Syria after the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, through the voices of three female refugees, Maraj, Noor and Dina. Their stories illuminate the challenges they face as refugees, ranging from long periods of waiting for services to lack of employment and education opportunities. The comic can be used to discuss Iraqi refugees specifically, but also to highlight the lives and struggles of urban refugees throughout the Middle East. >
