“This is an Assyrian village, and I am Assyrian. Our village used to be huge, but there are only a few families left here now, they all went away to Europe. Some of them visit in the summer. I also went to Germany for work for a while, and later my wife and children joined me. I got quite distressed after a few years. I couldn’t breathe there, I missed my quails, chicken and home. I returned to our village, but my family didn’t return with me, that is why I have been living alone for almost 25 years. I am used to solitude, I visit my friends whenever I feel safe. The people of the village bring me food and drinks, bless them. It is true that I am alone, but I am glad that I live in my own house and village.”
