About 3 years ago I was visiting my daughter, Ivy, at Bennington College. She had a remarkable friend named Galla Stambuk. Galla is Croatian and a devout Muslim.
Galla asked if she could send me some books. One of them was called Between Two Worlds: Escape from Tyranny: Growing up in the shadow of Saddam by Zainab Salbi.
It is one of the best books I have ever read and taught me so much about Iraq and its culture, and it answered many questions I had about Hussein. The book is an autobiography and ends with Ms. Salbi’s desire to help women in the world who have suffered from war or occupation. Here at Anichini, we now support 6 women in this program. The program is called Women for Women International.
