In October, my town was liberated from ISIS, and some of the residents eventually went back. There was nothing left in my house, not even the children’s beds, but one of my neighbours found my photo album and some individual photos scattered in the street, so he collected them and sent them to me.

This is one of the only memories I have from my home country.
