Synopsis

Rachel's Story - A Journey from a Country in Eurasia A Real-Life Account of Her Journey from a Country in Eurasia by Andy Glynne

This picture book tells the story of 13-year-old refugee Rachel who, along with her family, flees her home country to escape the persecution they suffer as Christians living in a predominantly Muslim country. Told in Rachel's own words, it documents the hostility and rejection that the family suffer at the hands of their community, as well as the courage and resilience they show in the face of immigration authorities, detention centres, deportation and, finally, in overcoming their problems and settling in their new country. The BAFTA award-winning Seeking Refuge stories were originally produced as animations for the BBC. These powerful and evocative stories have now been captured in book form as rich, visual testimonies of the torment, hope and resolution of young refugees who are seeking asylum and adjusting to life in new countries all over the world. The series of five books form an excellent cross-curricular resource that looks at asylum, war, separation and integration and what it is to be a refugee today making them ideal for tying into Refugee Week.
