Summary Out of Iraq tells the stories of a number of Iraqi refugee families that have made Syria their home over the five years since the war in Iraq began. In many cases, these families make rapid visits to attend funerals, check on their homes and care for elderly relatives. This book tells the stories of their flight from Iraq, the memories of home in the 'good old days' and their continued courage living as refugees
