She quotes a French doctor who commented:. They used sneakers and kept bread and cheese inside their shirts. They froze out in the field. They had cloth made of nylon.

The Talabanists had Coke and cookies in the hospital; the democrats only had bread and goat cheese. Ghassemlou is a significant part of Kurdish history, a charismatic leader who spoke nine languages and had an appealing sense of humour.
He was a man who stayed democrat even when this quality worked against him. He died while having a dialogue with one of the most despotic regimes of the world, Islamic Republic of Iran. Echoes from the Other Land has a running theme of resistance by modern Kurdish women.

Good : A book that has been read but is in good condition. Shipped to over one million happy customers. We were introduced at the Kurdish Institute, where I was attending an art exhibition with the fi lmmaker Yilmaz Guney and his wife, Fatosh. I had met Guney at the Cannes Film Festival in Th at year he had won the Golden Palm Award, and the publicity that followed brought worldwide attention to the plight of the Kurdish nation.
As a Venezuelan journalist, my limited impression of the Kurds was that they were fierce warriors who lived amongst distant mountains somewhere in the Middle East. Yilmaz Guney taught me about the free-spirited Kurdish people, opening my eyes to the oppression they had endured for centuries. Their situation touched me deeply and I began to write articles on the Kurds for Venezuelan newspapers and magazines.
One year later in Paris, I found myself standing face-to-face with this sophisticated, charming, and charismatic Middle Eastern leader of millions of Kurds in Iran. He was the visionary and cultivated leader of the Iranian Kurdish revolutionary movement, brutally assassinated in while negotiating a peace accord for his people with Iran's government emissaries in Vienna. His light still shines upon the volatile politics of this remote Middle East region that continues to play prominently upon the world's political stage.
