“We women and children were taken by bus to another area. All along the way, they humiliated us. They touched us, they raped us. They brought us to Mosul with over 150 Yazidi families. "
Nadia Murad, 21, yazidi, tells the representatives of many countries, at the UN Security Council, the horror she survived. In a terrorist attack, his whole family is killed. But she will say that what she's been through, what these women are going through, is worse than death.
In a building, hundreds of Yazidi families, children, were exchanged, like gifts. One of the people present came to see me. He wanted to take me. I looked down. I was absolutely petrified. When I looked up I saw a huge man. Like a monster. I screamed. I screamed so much. I told him :
" I am too young. You are huge. He hit me, he kicked me, he beat me.
A few minutes later another man came to me. I was still looking at the ground. I saw he was a little smaller. I begged him. I implored him to take me. I was so scared of the first man. The man who took me proposed to me, so to speak. I told him I was sick. A few days later, he forced me to dress, put on my makeup, and there, that terrible night, he did it. He forced me to serve his group of soldiers. He humiliated me every day.
He forced me to wear clothes that did not cover my body. I was tortured. I tried to run away but one of the guards caught up with me. That night he beat me. He asked me to undress. He put me in a room, with guards. And there, they abused me. Until I passed out. 3 months after my kidnapping, I managed to escape. I now live in Germany. Finally, I implore you to get rid of Daesh. Completely. I survived this terrible suffering because of them.
I saw what they do to boys, to girls. All those who commit these crimes of human trafficking, genocide, must be brought to justice, so that women and children can live in peace in Syria, Iraq, Somalia, Nigeria, everywhere. We must put an end to these crimes. Today. Thank you, thank you very much. "
With these words, the representative of New Zealand intervened:
“When I came here 25 years ago, we spent a lot of time protecting human rights. 25 years later, the reality is there. Slavery is alive, very much alive in our world. […] This is the horrible reality we face today. "
