Rezensionen
A New York Times Editors' Choice

This devastating memoir unflinchingly recounts Murad s experiences and questions the complicity of witnesses who acquiesced in the suffering of others. The New Yorker

"Her book is sobering and an inspiration." People

A harrowing memoir. . . . Intricate in historical context. . . . The Last Girl leaves readers with urgent, incendiary questions. The New York Times Book Review

Murad gives us a window on the atrocities that destroyed her family and nearly wiped out her vulnerable community. This is a courageous memoir that serves as an important step toward holding to account those who committed horrific crimes. The Washington Post

This is likely the most inspiring feminist memoir out this year. Bustle

Nadia Murad's courageous account is horrific and essential reading. . . . Anyone who wants to understand the so-called Islamic State should read The Last Girl. The Economist

"Fascinating." Vulture

Surpassingly valuable. . . . With her new book, The Last Girl, Nadia Murad has assumed the stature of an Elie Wiesel for her people. . . . As much as it is an account of the Yazidi genocide, the book is also a loving ode to a way of life that has now been all but obliterated. Jewish Journal

A harrowing and brave book, a testament to human resilience. The Progressive

"A devastating yet ultimately inspiring memoir that doubles as an urgent call to action. Kirkus

Brilliant and intense. . . . a clear-eyed account of ISIS s cruelty. Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Powerful. . . . A heartbreaking elegy to a lost community. Booklist
