  • Nadia Murad Basee, a Yazidi woman, shared her experience of the atrocities that she underwent because of ISIS
  • Having escaped from ISIS’ captivity, the brave woman is now urging for retributive justice
  • She equates the experience of Yazidi people to the Jewish Holocaust in Germany

July 25, 2017: Nadia Murad Basee is a Yazidi woman who was captured by ISIS from her village Kocho, Iraq in August 2014. The terrorist organization sold her as a sex slave. Nadia’s life was shattered. Six of her brothers were killed during the ISIS raid on her house.

Nadia, who dreamt of becoming a teacher, had her life destroyed by the extremists. After months of captivity, however, she was able to escape from the hands of her kidnappers. The room where she was held was left unlocked by one of the men. Grabbing the opportunity, Nadia ran off.


Today, Nadia Murad Basee is part of the refugee asylum program in Germany amongst thousands of people. Her remarkable bravery is exhibited as she shares her story around the world.

The Yazidi woman was chosen by United Nations as the Goodwill Ambassador in 2016. She advocates for the rights and justice of Yazidi people and urges strong action against the men who committed the crimes.

Yazidis are seen as non-believers by the extremist organization ISIS. Over 5,200 Yazidis have been abducted by ISIS in Iraq.

Nadia equates the current situation to the Jewish Holocaust in Germany. As she claims, there are striking similarities. She has received assistance from IsraAID and Yazda which are non-profit organizations set up to help victims of such crimes. As Nadia puts it, these organizations have been more helpful than “any government”.

Speaking with The Jerusalem Post in Israel, Nadia said “We think our case is relevant to what they have been through in the Holocaust. It’s the thing we are going through. We think they’ll understand our case more than anybody else. We have been in many countries, meeting with governments for help for the Yazidi communities. I always wanted to come here to Israel, a lot of victims wanted to come and ask for help from the government and people of Israel.”

In the memory of Jewish genocide victims, Israel’s parliament Knesset is holding a conference where Nadia is supposed to speak on the same. Just as Hitler’s forces committed hate crimes against the Jews, ISIS has been doing the same with the Yazidi people.

Nadia acknowledges the courage of the Jews to pick themselves up after the brutal crimes committed against them. She hopes that her community learns and does the same.

The mass murder of Yazidi community by ISIS constitutes a hate crime. Murad’s objective is to highlight this crime against the members of her community and punish the perpetrators.
