First Lines Contest 2019: The Kurdish Connection

Randall Krzak Updated May 12, 2019
TKC front cover
Two weeks after the attack on Halabja, Dersim Razyana, an eighteen-year-old engineering student, returned from Beirut to the remains of his hometown—to bury his parents and two brothers. His childhood friends, seventeen-year-old Ismet Timur and sixteen-year-old Hawre Vandad, were also victims of Saddam Hussein’s regime. Ismet suffered horrendous burns over his face, upper body, and arms.
