Life in the Shadow of Iraq: The Kurdish Struggle for Freedom


For the last decade the Kurdish minority who live on the border of Iraq and Turkey have been caught between the brutal policies of the regime of Saddam Hussein and the government of Turkey, Iraq’s northern neighbor. Investigative journalist Pratap Chatterjee traveled to south-eastern Turkey to find out how current events have affected this minority community. This week we present a special documentary that chronicles Kurdish life in the shadow of Iraq.


Voices from South Eastern Turkey including truck drivers, musicians and shipping officials.
