"Halima Bashir was born into the remote western deserts of the Sudan to the fiercely independent Zaghawa tribe. Her childhood was wonderfully rich and she flourished, going to university to study medicine and returning to her people as the tribe's first qualified doctor." "But this happy environment was shattered when Janjaweed Arab militias began savagely attacking her village, gang raping schoolgirls and innocent women. Halima could not stand by and do nothing and she spoke out to a Sudanese newspaper and to the UN. Then her own nightmare began. She was captured, tortured and raped, and when she finally escaped, the army followed her. Halima knew she had to leave for good and she set out on an epic journey to escape the hell of Darfur"--record for an English language edition

Tears of the desert : one woman's true story of surviving the horrors of Darfur by Halima Bashir( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tears of the Desert is the first memoir ever written by a woman caught up in the war in Darfur. It is a survivor's tale of a conflicted country, a resilient people, and the uncompromising spirit of a young woman who refused to be silenced. Born into the Zaghawa tribe in the Sudanese desert, Halima was doted on by her father, a cattle herder, and kept in line by her formidable grandmother. A politically astute man, Halima's father saw to it that his daughter received a good education away from their rural surroundings. Halima excelled in her studies and exams, surpassing even the privileged Arab girls who looked down their noses at the black Africans. With her love of learning and her father's support, Halima went on to study medicine, and at twenty-four she became her village's first formal doctor. Yet not even the symbol of good luck that dotted her eye could protect her from the encroaching conflict that would consume her land. Janjaweed Arab militias started savagely assaulting the Zaghawa, often with the backing of the Sudanese military. Then, in early 2004, the Janjaweed attacked Bashir's village and surrounding areas, raping forty-two schoolgirls and their teachers. Bashir, who treated the traumatized victims, some as young as eight years old, could no longer remain quiet. But breaking her silence ignited a horrifying turn of events. In this harrowing account, Halima Bashir sheds light on the hundreds of thousands of innocent lives being eradicated in what has surely become the most terrifying genocide of the twenty-first century. Tears of the Desert is more than just a memoir - it is Halima Bashir's global call to action.--BOOK JACKET
Halima : mein Weg aus der Hölle von Darfur by Halima Bashir( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Darfur. Ein Wort, das mit Blut und Leiden getränkt ist. Ein Begriff, der schrecklichste Bilder heraufbeschwört. Schmerzen und Grauen, die in der zivilisierten Welt unvorstellbar wären. Aber für mich ist Darfur auch noch etwas anderes: Es ist meine Heimat.<<Halima Bashir, eine junge Ärztin aus dem Sudan, legt Zeugnis ab. Als Halima 1979 zur Welt kommt, träumt ihr Vater, dass sein Kind heilende Kräfte haben wird - und tatsächlich gelingt es Halima als erster Vertreterin ihres Stammes, an einer arabischen Universität Medizin zu studieren. Doch kaum beginnt sie zu praktizieren, greifen die im Sudan schwelenden Konflikte auf die Darfur-Region über. Die Gewalttaten der arabischen Milizen erreichen einen grausamen Höhepunkt, als im Januar 2004 eine ganze Schulklasse achtjähriger Mädchen gefangengenommen und missbraucht wird. Halima behandelt die traumatisierten Kinder und schlägt öffentlich Alarm - bei der UN und bei den Medien. Von da an wird ihr Leben zur Hölle. Verhaftungen, Folter, Vergewaltigung folgen. Halimas Dorf wird dem Erdboden gleichgemacht, ihr Vater ermordet. Sie muss das Land verlassen - aber wie? Mit dem Mut der Verzweiflung und gegen alle Wahrscheinlichkeit schafft sie die Flucht nach London. Und bricht nun zum zweiten Mal ihr Schweigen, um der Welt von Darfur zu erzählen. (kno)
