Freitag ist ein guter Tag zum Flüchten

Elyas Jamalzadeh / Andreas Hepp

"Imagine being nervous all your life, noticing everything, being on guard all the time. I was born nervous. I was illegal. Every year, every day, every minute it could happen." Elyas Jamalzadeh's Afghan parents were already living in Iran when he came into the world. He was born a refugee. In 2014, he set out on the dangerous journey to Europe. With impressive immediacy, a journey is described here that one can hardly survive. The fact that Jamalzadeh has never lost his humor and ambition helps him arrive in a foreign country. He learns German, starts an apprenticeship and falls in love. A tragic, a funny book, a book that leaves no one cold!
