Annabel  Wahba - A Thousand Miles Across the Sea


Flight across the sea – based on a true story

Karim has managed to get away from his embattled home town of Homs. He and his family first make it to Egypt, and from there he tries to cross the Mediterranean with his uncle to Italy. In the process he loses his uncle in the crowds, misses the boat of the people smugglers and ends up in prison. During his next attempt to escape by boat he nearly drowns in a storm. It borders on a miracle that months later he can go to school in Konstanz. Although Karim misses his parents and he finds it difficult to make friends, he begins to find his feet. But then a class mate accuses him of bullying.

•Riveting and moving

•Carefully researched by ZEIT journalist Annabel Wahba
