Reborn 21 times: A tortured story of what it means to survive as a minority today.
Born to a family in exile from Palestine, Ghazi Hussein was first imprisoned at the age of 14. He was never charged but was ‘guilty of carrying thoughts’. Repeatedly imprisoned and tortured over the next 20 years, he says that poetry saved his sanity. ‘If I still remained in my place of birth…..my voice would be silenced. Here in Scotland I have the opportunity to tell my story, one which I believe is important and relevant to what is happening across the world at this time’.
