A woman in the crossfire : diaries of the Syrian revolution by Samar Yazbik( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a devastating and personal account of the ongoing uprising in Syria from a prominent Syrian journalist now in hiding. The author, a well known novelist and journalist from the coastal city of Jableh, has witnessed the first four months of the uprising first hand and actively participated in a variety of public actions and budding social movements. Throughout this period she kept a diary of personal reflections on, and observations of, this historic time. Because of the outspoken views she published in print and online, she quickly attracted the attention and fury of the regime, and vicious rumours started to spread about her disloyalty to the homeland and to the Alawite community that she belongs to. This narrative weaves together her independent struggle to protect herself and her young daughter even as her activism propels her into a daunting labyrinth of insecurity after she is forced from her home into living on the run and detained multiple times, expelled from the Alawite community and repudiated by her family, her hometown and even her childhood friends. With empathy and journalistic rigour she began to compile oral testimonies from ordinary Syrians, both as a means of documenting contemporary history and as a way for her to better understand the forces that contributed to the outbreak of the uprising. Filled with snapshots of exhilarating hope and horrifying atrocities, she offers us a unique perspective on the Syrian uprising. Hers is a modest yet powerful testament to the strength and commitment of countless unnamed, individual Syrians who have united to fight for their freedom. These diaries will inspire all those who read them and challenge the world to look anew at the trials and tribulations of the Syrian uprising
Die gestohlene Revolution : Reise in mein zerstörtes Syrien by Samar Yazbik( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2012 erregte Samar Yazbeks Syrien-Bericht "Schrei nach Freiheit" Aufsehen. Yazbek musste fliehen; seither kehrte sie mehrfach heimlich in ihre Heimat zurück und beobachtete, wie sehr sich die Revolution verändert hat: Vom friedlichen Bürgerprotest gegen die Diktatur zum bewaffneten Widerstand, dann zum Bürgerkrieg, immer stärker dominiert von islamistischen Gruppen, bis zum bloßen Albtraum, aus dem der IS den größten Nutzen zieht. Yazbeks Interesse gilt den einzelnen Menschen in diesem Wandel, deren Schicksale sie mit großer Eindringlichkeit beschreibt. Sie sind die Hoffnung Syriens - und das Ergebnis einer Gewaltspirale, die das Land täglich weiter zerstört. Ein wichtiges, dringendes Buch. (Quelle: buchhandel.de)
Die Fremde im Spiegel : Roman by Samar Yazbik( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit ihrem aufwühlenden Tagebuch wurde Samar Yazbek zur Chronistin der syrischen Revolution. Jetzt erzählt sie aus dem Innern der syrischen Gesellschaft - von Hanan, die ihren Ehemann im Bett mit ihrer jungen Dienerin Alia erwischt. Für ihn empfindet Hanan zwar nur Abscheu, mit Alia aber verbindet sie eine Liebesgeschichte; voller Wut und Eifersucht jagt sie sie aus dem Haus. Aufgewühlt starrt sie ihr durchs Fenster hinterher und wird sich dabei ihres Lebens bewusst. Parallel dazu wird Alias Herkunft erzählt, die Geschichte eines Mädchens, das von früh auf gelernt hat zu kämpfen. Samar Yazbeks Roman basiert auf einem realen Skandal und handelt von Gewalt, Abhängigkeit und Herrschaft, wie sie das Leben vieler Frauen im modernen Syrien bestimmen

Samar Yazbek var godt kjent i hjemlandet Syria som forfatter og journalist, men i 2011 falt hun i unåde av Assad-regimet og ble tvunget til å flykte. Siden da har hun sett det som sin oppgave å vitne om lidelsene til sitt folk. Hun vendte tilbake til sitt hjemland ved å klemme seg gjennom et hull i gjerdet på den tyrkiske grensen. I «The crossing» forteller hun om den forferdelige virkeligheten som er Syria i dag. Fra de første uskyldige demonstrasjoner for demokrati, til begynnelsen på Free Syrian Army og ISIS' ankomst. Yazbek skildrer soldater, barn, vanlige menn og kvinner som prøver å holde seg i live. Om å leve innenfor rekkevidden av snikskyttere, hvordan unge menn prøver å kjempe mot militære overordnede, om barna og bunkertilværelsen
Comme si nous attrapions un cobra by Hala Abdallah( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in Arabic and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indiqué sur la jaquette : Au cours des deux années qu'a duré la réalisation du film - du début de l'été 2010 à celui de l'été 2012- d'immenses bouleversements se sont produits au Moyen-Orient, et notamment dans les deux pays du film, L'Égypte et la Syrie. Un film comme celui-là, sur la liberté d'expression et sa répression dans ces pays ne pouvait que s'embarquer dans le cours effréné des révolutions à l'œuvre ... En interrogeant l'expérience de différents caricaturistes égyptiens et syriens avant et pendant ces volte-face historiques contre le despotisme, ce film essaie de tâter le pouls d'une liberté appelée aussi à garantir notre avenir et notre droit à l'expression, et à nous préserver des censeurs. L'écrivain et journaliste syrienne Samar Yazbek accompagne ce film de sa réflexion et de son ressenti, depuis Damas dans les mois précédant la révolution syrienne, jusque dans l'exil en France 5 mois après son déclenchement
