Sami Alhaj: A Story Of Life

In May 2008, when he was released from Guantanamo Bay, his story was allover the media and the internet.

Today, people are still talking about his experience but what they don’t really know is his daily struggle to cope back with “normal” life.

I had the opportunity to interview him and ask him for updates about his situation and story.

You can’t miss reading this!

Your feedback is appreciated, as always! 🙂

  1. Nice chance to interview him! In Germany there is a well known ex-detainee of Guantanamo called Murat Kurnaz. Similar to Sami Alhaj, he is engaged in improving the living conditions in the prison and called for Germany to accept a current inmate. In fact, he recently wrote in a German Newspaper about some still-detainees. I just tried to translate the main message on my blog into english.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. It’s amazing how much effort these former detainees put into trying to fight and improve the situation. Do you think you can send me the link for the article?
