Where did you run from?

Dar Karni, Nertiti Locality, Central Darfur State, to Nyala, North Darfur State. My town was attacked by rebels in 2003, so I had to flee.

Where do you plan to go?

I want to go back home.

What do you wish you could have taken with you? And why do you still dream of it?

My library, which contains valuable books collected throughout my career in the different positions I held in private and public institutions. Losing my library is an obsession for me. I remember it every time I want to read a book in my spare time.

What is your favourite item now? And what makes this item very precious?

There is nothing.
