Imaani  Brown - Coming Home


A true story about feeling foreign and about arriving – and the desperate search for a home

What does it feel like to grow up in a war zone, in the midst of ruins, bombs, and death? How does this still affect a person who as a child was sent off to a foreign land, ending up alone and unable to understand anyone? Is it possible to find a place there that can ever be called home?

Imaani Brown tells of being uprooted, of having to flee. Of pain, fear, and disappointment. But also of possibilities, of love and joy. And the glimmers of hope that life has, even in the darkest of times.

Imaani Brown was sent to Germany at a time when refugees were calmly and kindly received. He was not threatened by demonstrators, nor did he ever have to escape from a burning refugee shelter. For this he is grateful. He wishes for his children that they can grow up in a country where the meaning of the word empathy does not need to be looked up in a dictionary. To this end, his book makes a valuable contribution.
