Magnet Nadia Murad11.5*3.8 cm
Magnet with print and quote of Nadia Murad.
Nadia Murad was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, jointly with Denis Mukwege, for her efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict.
Nadia Murad was born and raised a Yezidi in the village of Kocho, once a peaceful rural area in northern Iraq. On 3 August 2014, Kocho was one of the first Yezidi villages in the area to be attacked by IS. Murad’s mother and six of her nine brothers were executed. She was abducted along with around 6,800 others. Women and girls were sold as sex slaves. Murad was raped, beaten and tortured before managing to escape three months later. After receiving help in Germany, she chose to use her voice to tell the world about the abuse the Yezidi women experienced. She defied the stigma and shame that often accompanies rape. In 2016, she was appointed UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking.
