The Promise

The Promise

When Gazin Najim met Ra’ad Said at university in Baghdad, she knew she had found the love of her life. A traditional Iraqi wedding and the arrival of their two children made their happiness complete. But then Saddam Hussein came to power and their world changed. Guzin saw her husband tortured and poisoned. When a chance of freedom came, she grabbed it and fled to Sydney.

Guzin Najim’s biography is a story of love, and the courage one woman had to honour it, in the midst of a nation’s upheaval.
