A portrait of a 13 year old Yazidi girl who was captured by Islamic State (IS) on 3 August 2014 and is now living in a refugee camp in Dohuk. She was taken to several locations in Syria and Iraq. She was beaten with sticks after a cat defecated on a Quran and Yazidi girls in IS captivity were blamed for the incident. One day, while the a group of Yazidi girls were told to take a shower, one of the girls committed suicide. After three months this girl was finally able to escape through a window of a building with a number of other girls. Her parents, four of her sisters and her brother are still in IS captivity.
