I remember checking this book out from the library and didn't put it down until I had finished it. The author Jean Sasson flew to the Gulf when she heard about the Iraqi invasion and interviewed Kuwaiti refugees. This book is their stories and it is definitely an eye opener. When you see the fancy cars, designer bags and what looks like extravagant spending you would never have thought that at one time Kuwaiti citizens were "refugees."
Yes, they celebrate each year in February but does the new generation even know what the celebration is actually about? My hubby was there as a teenager and told me countless stories of survival and how the Kuwaiti citizens came together and supported each other which is something you don't see any more. These days there is an internal conflict amongst the citizens and everyone is fighting each other. What happened to the unity and tears shed when Kuwait was liberated?Amazon
