Our Latest News

Basema
Basema

3 Generations has been recording the stories of refugees for more than 10 years. It is one of the issues that is at the core of our work. We recently have been working on some short videos about Yazidi women who escaped the genocide perpetrated against their people in Iraq.

In 2014 the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS) committed genocide against the Yazidi people in the Sinjar province in Iraq. Thousands of Yazidi women and girls were forced into sexual slavery by ISIS, and thousands of Yazidi men were killed. Five thousand Yazidi civilians were killed in total. The genocide led to the expulsion, flight and exile of the Yazidis from their ancestral lands in Iraq.

We have been honored to document the testimony of three Yazidi women who managed to escape and are now living in Canada. We recently finished creating the video of Basema. In the video the ISIS survivor tells a harrowing account of her and her son’s enslavement by ISIS. She shares a brave memory about a life saving moment between herself and her child. Despite all of her pain and suffering she was able to continue to fight for survival because of her love for him.

We invite you to watch the video and hear her story.
