"My name is Azad. I am from north of Aleppo in Syria. There is fighting in my area, people are shot with rifles, with missiles, with rockets. Jabhat Al Nusrah [the Al-Nusrah Front] is there. I saw on the news that there is fierce fighting in my area today, we don't know when it will stop. If ISIS catch me they will immediately behead me, first of all because I am Yazidi, and because I am Kurdish. My brothers and sister have left Syria already, only my mother is left there, my father is dead. We have to delete our memories, and the dead cannot come back to life, but we still have hope of a new beginning, a different future, the end of the war in Syria. That's all we want for the new year.
