The Girl From Aleppo

'The Girl from Aleppo' & Responding to Syria's Humanitarian Crisis: Acclaimed British foreign correspondent and author Christina Lamb now tells the timely and inspiring story of a remarkable young hero: sixteen year-old Nujeen Mustafa. Born with cerebral palsy, Nujeen undertook a harrowing journey from war-ravaged Aleppo to Germany in all in a wheelchair. She tells the details of her experience for the first time in a memoir, Nujeen, co-authored with Christina Lamb. In the context of Nujeen’s unimaginable journey, the evening discussion will look at the course of the Syrian Civil War, the impact of bringing individual stories to the public and action Western countries could take to bring urgent relief to the besieged population of Aleppo. Chaired by Azadeh Moaveni (former Middle East correspondent for Time magazine), the panel will include: Christina Lamb, the Rt Hon Andrew Mitchell and Mina Al-Oraibi (Iraqi-British journalist and political analyst). Taking place on 6 December, 2016 at the Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London, W2 1QJ​. ​
