Remembering Soraya Serajaddini
Tragedy closed the curtains of July 23rd and took from us a wonderful friend, a Kurdish woman who defined strength and determination; she has made her mark not only on all who had the privilege to know her but also on her continuous fight for the Kurdish people and women right.
We send our most sincere condolences to Mr. Tom, her children, Sergeddini’s family and friends and will remember her in our every thought. Though she is no longer with us, her memories fill us with her presence and in our sadness and grief we honor her for who she was and what she stood for. May she rest in peace .
