Life in Exile
The Untold Story of Civil War and Refugee LifeBook - 2017
"In this moving memoir, Dekow Diriye Sagar shares his story of growing up in a rural village in Southern Somalia, his terrifying escape of the civil war in the 1990s, and his life in the United States after being resettled. Sagar's story begins in his home village near Bardere, in 1991, at the age of seven years old. In one horrific day, the family lost their home and many loved ones, and began the arduous 15-year journey that ultimately brought him to the United States as a refugee. The war in Somalia claimed hundreds of thousands of innocent lives, forced millions of citizens to seek safety and security in refugee camps and to flee into exile. Along the excruciating path to safety and freedom, shelter was a hot cloth tent with no electricity or running water. Life in Exile is a must-read for professionals in areas of healthcare, human services, education, and research. The book is ideal for those pursuing careers in political science, social work, health, education, leadership, and management, as well as for service providers in refugee and immigrant programs. Sagar's journey will deepen your understanding of a refugee's challenges and equip professionals to better serve this population." -- Taken from back cover.
